35 Arrested Near Site of Proposed “Cop City” Police Training Center in Atlanta

HeadlineMar 06, 2023

In Atlanta, at least 35 people were arrested Sunday as protesters marked the start of a nationwide week of action against Cop City, a $90 million police training facility being built in the Weelaunee Forest. The Defend the Atlanta Forest collective said those arrested were peaceful protesters who were attending a concert in the forest when they were surrounded by police. This comes less than two months after Atlanta police shot and killed Manuel Paez Terán, a 26-year-old environmental defender, who also went by the name Tortuguita.
