Unhoused Atlanta Residents Form Union, Occupy City Hall Pressing Demands 

HeadlineJul 08, 2021

Back in the United States, the newly formed Atlanta Homeless Union has been protesting all week outside of Atlanta’s City Hall. Earlier this week, police violently removed their encampment and arrested at least six people. The group of unhoused activists are demanding housing, healthcare, clean water, and a seat at the table in determining policies that impact their lives. In a statement, the group is calling on city officials to stop relying on “band-aid solutions” and to listen to those “closest to the problem.”
