The “At Promise Center” is a “youth center” funded by the Atlanta Police Foundation. According to a report in corporate media, a window of the building was smashed, and the side of the building was set on fire. The following is a communiqué, submitted anonymously by email:
On the morning of the 27th we set fire to the Atlanta Police Foundation’s Westside “At Promise Center”.
This was the day before the two year anniversary of the burning of the third precinct in Minneapolis.
Fuck The Police.

The time is now! This is a call from some of us living in the Atlanta Forest; We invite you to join us in its defense.
The forest, which is stolen Muscogee land, is slated to become a mock-city for police training. We have no intention of allowing this, nor of limiting our efforts to tree sits and lockdowns (already there have been 3 arson attacks, damaged machinery, home and office visits, barricades, etc.). The more people there are staying in the forest, the more options are open to us. Living in the forest gives us ability to immediately respond to any threat the forest faces. We must not allow them an inch without meeting opposition. Not one blade of grass. As it stands, the forest feels autonomous and the police are reluctant to go deep within it. Help us keep it that way. Come now to defend the forest, in struggle against the police and the civilization that needs them.
