Police in Atlanta, Georgia, raided the Weelaunee Forest Monday in an attempt to clear protesters who have camped in the area for months as part of a campaign to block the construction of a massive police training facility known as Cop City. According to the Atlanta Justice Alliance, one of the first things destroyed during the raid was a memorial to Tortuguita, a forest defender who was shot dead by police in January. There are reports authorities may be planning to begin clear-cutting parts of the forest in the coming days.
