Police Fire Tear Gas and “Less Lethal” Munitions at Stop Cop City Protesters

HeadlineNov 14, 2023

In Atlanta, Georgia, police attacked peaceful protesters with tear gas, pepper balls and flashbang grenades Monday as hundreds rallied against the construction of a massive $90 million police training complex known as Cop City. Over 400 protesters marched toward the sacred Weelaunee Forest, the proposed site for Cop City, where activists spoke to the crowd, including the parents of environmental defender Manuel Esteban Terán, known as Tortuguita, who was fatally shot by Georgia state troopers in January.
