On December 14th, The Georgia Bureau of Investigation [GBI] raided the Antifa “autonomous zone” near Atlanta. This is an Antifa squatter camp in the woods. It was erected months ago to protest the construction of the proposed Atlanta Public Safety Training Center in DeKalb County.
The GBI reports that there have been numerous previous arrests at the site. Criminal activity from the site has included carjacking, various crimes against persons, destruction of property, arson, and attacks against public safety officials.
On December 13th, “several people threw rocks at police cars and attacked EMTs outside the neighboring fire stations with rocks and bottles,” according to the GBI. At this point, law enforcement officials could no longer turn a blind eye.
The GBI reports that the site is full of makeshift treehouses, and the perps had “explosive devices.” Five people, four from out of state, were arrested and charged with domestic terrorism.
