Atlanta update: ‘Dismantle racist police’

June 7 — For the ninth day in a row, people in Atlanta, as well as many other cities, continue to put pressure on Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp and Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms. Demands include dismantling of the racist and fascist police institutional structures that continue to escalate violence even as we march to end police brutality. The police terrorized our activists with rubber bullets, tear gas and batons for seven days in a row, until finally the powerful protests forced the governor and mayor to flee their homes and go into hiding.
