Come celebrate spring, eat good food, and hang out at a peoples’ festival.
Food Not Bombs believes that public space should be for everyone, and that we should use the commons to help each other, relate to each other, and create the world we want to live in.
Let’s turn Woodruff Park into a space for creative resistance, diversity, and fun!
Net Neutrality is dead. We know that this is bad, but how does it actually affect radical struggle? We know that we should resist it, but beyond calling congress what can we actually do?
Join us for a discussion on network autonomy. We will present work being done in Atlanta on off-grid wireless communication, mesh networks, and discuss possibilities for what community control over our communications infrastructure could look like.
Come with ideas, questions, and curiosity – no background in technology is required.
Let’s figure out how we can make truly free networks, and get to work creating them!

This is a casual meetup for anyone who wants to learn about information security. It’s an opportunity to ask questions, get help with problems, and help each other learn. Feel free to come with your own topics to explore, or just follow along with others.

Two free trainings from Resistance School
Know Your Rights (10:00-12:00):
Everyone needs to know what their rights are when dealing with the police. This training teaches how to assert your constitutional rights using real-life scenarios to educate in a fun and accessible way. Learn what to say and what not to say when stopped by the police, how to act in jail, and more.
How To Copwatch (1:00-3:00):
This workshop covers good practices for “copwatching”, or video recording the police. Copwatching can provide important evidence of police misconduct, and sometimes even stop cops from abusing people in the first place. It’s important, but can be risky without preparation. This training prepares you to record the cops in a safe, legal, and effective way. Learn how to work in a small team to monitor police activity during large protests or everyday encounters in the neighborhood.

On April 27th, multiple additional felony charges were added. The 211 remaining defendants could now face up to 75 years in prison.
