Kamau Franklin is an activist, grassroots organizer and podcast journalist
Channing Martinez and Julian Lamb discuses with Kamau Franklin of Community Movement Builders, Inc. Atlanta’s construction of Cop City.
What is Cop City?
Cop city is the largest law enforcement facility, designed with intentions to train law enforcement agents in the use of oppressive, suppressive, and violent militarized tactics against Black, Brown, and people of color. The construction of Cop City is an ongoing effort by the city of Atlanta, Georgia to centralized and globalize the paramilitarization of municipal law agents here in the U.S. and abroad. The backers of cop City have initiated outreach efforts and invitations to law agency from other nations such as the Israeli police force. It is an exchange program designed to import and export over-policing, racist policing, and the oppression of poor and marginalized people.
True to its purpose, and even before its intended completion, Cop city has already murdered its first victim.
on January 18, 2023, Manuel Esteban Paez Terán, also known as Tortuguita was shot and killed
by Atlanta State Troopers during a raid against peaceful environmental activist protesting and protecting
the sight against the construction and violence of Cop City.
