Stop Cop City
In the midst of a collapsing climate and against the will of the public, the
Atlanta Police Department plans to clear cut 300 acres of forest to construct a mock city for
training / military exercises. An additional 170 acres is slated to be clear cut
and developed for Hollywood production.
“Stop Cop City”, or “Defend the Atlanta Forest”, is a decentralized, autonomous resistance
that is currently occupying this forest to fight back against any attempts by the city and
the police to destroy or develop the land. The anonymous occupiers consist of environmentalists,anarchists, abolitionists, and others, all of whom are fiercely committed to defending Atlanta, Georgia’s
largest remaining green space by all necessary means.
These photos attempt to share the beauty and resilience of the Atlanta forest, and of those who live within it.
“Cop city will never be built”.
