Announcing a presentation on the struggle to defend the Atlanta forest in Philadelphia during Meadowfest.
In the wake of the 2020 George Floyd rebellion, Atlanta-area officials have planned to build the largest police training compound in the country – by bulldozing the largest urban tree canopy in the country! Meanwhile, film-industry executives plan to clear-cut what remains in order to build “the largest sound-stage complex on Earth.”
Join us for an in-depth overview and conversation with on-the-ground activists involved in the historic movement to Stop Cop City and Defend The Atlanta Forest.
