We — all of us — need your help to put the “Stop the Atlanta Safety Training Facility Public (aka Stop Cop City) referendum on the up-coming November 7 Atlanta ballot.
We need all registered Atlanta voters — including your friends, neighbors and even peeps that you don’t like — to sign the ballot-access petition before the August 14th deadline. If you are not registered to vote, please do so. You can sign the petition the next day. Then please put the Tuesday November 7th election day on your calendar and vote !
This referendum is more than militarization of much-needed green space, more than the execution-murder of a peaceful protester in a public DeKalb park, more than the heavy political hands of Atlanta’s mayor and Georgia’s governor and attorney general, more than behind-the-scenes power plays of Atlanta’s corporate businesses, more than the back-door politics of the Democratic and Republican Parties, more than the corrupt influence of the Atlanta Police Foundation, more than the pollution of South River and Intrenchment Creek, more than . . . .
This referendum is about our promised democracy, is about necessary over-sight and accountability of Atlanta’s decision-makers, is about making Atlanta’s governance listen to us, is about two public comment sessions (the first in September 2021 and the second just this last June 5th) where speakers were over-whelmingly against the proposed “Cop City.”
We are a political party that is always looking for good people to run for elective office, including for Atlanta City Council. Your help is needed, whether it’s collecting petition signatures, educating your neighbors, spreading the word on Social media, helping us build a campaign for law enforcement to be accountable to the people and civilian authorities, and perhaps running for office on these and other issues.

This event features a panel including the now grown children of former political prisoners Fulani Sunni-Ali (may she be well rewarded for her many contributions) and Georgia resident, Baba Bilal Sunni-Ali who survived Sr. Fulani’s untimely death, perhaps six or eight years ago now. Sr. Fulani for many years co-hosted with Sulaiman Mahdi, (who was himself a founding member of the Georgia Green Party, may he too be long remembered and well rewarded), a weekly program on Radio Free Georgia (WRFG-89.3FM).

In March of this year, our slate of two candidates for the Georgia General Assembly qualified with the Secretary of State. They are busy finalizing their ballot access petitioning efforts to secure their place on the ballot. Bradley Smith in Georgia 106th District and Jimmy Cooper from Georgia’s 145th District are each expected to attend. Party officers remain eager to speak with you about opportunities to run in subsequent election cycles for public office in your community as well.
At its state committee meeting on April 17th, the Georgia Green Party “condemn(ed) as despicable, the actions of the Biden Administration to interfere in the democratically elected government of yet another sovereign nation. . . . (and) calls on Congress to investigate the corrupt practices of the Biden Administration and its State Department to overturn the democratic will of the citizens of Pakistan to form their own government and to pursue public policies in the best interests of the Pakistani people.”
Mr. Khan continues to enjoy widespread popular support and is now campaigning to expose the U.S. financed corruption which led to the no-confidence vote and restore to his coalition government.
In the midst of the Ramadan fast, Imran Khan, Member of Parliament recently ousted
as Prime Minister in a U.S. State Department financed coup, has drawn crowds of millions
at political rallies held after taraweeh prayers observed late at night during the Muslim fast.
The state committee of the party has agreed to endorse the Black Liberation Movement Joint Statement on Ukraine.
Ramadan Mubarak. I pray this finds you and your family doing well.
It is my privilege to report, that on a conference call of its state committee, held this evening, April 2nd, 2022, the Georgia Green Party was agreed, without objection, and with one member standing aside, to endorse the Black Liberation Movement Joint Statement on Ukraine. We do so with a single caveat that our existing platform gives us no authority to speak in support of ‘universal childcare’, but that otherwise the foreign and domestic policy aims advanced by this statement are well within the framework of the existing policy of the party. Further, the historical analysis of this paper is in keeping with our perspective on the U.S. imperial aggression driving this conflict with potential nuclear consequences.
Thank you for this initiative by the NBLM National Unity Initiative.
In your publicity, please identify our support as:
Georgia Green Party
Kweku Lumumba and David Josue, co-chairs
Please be sure to advise us of how we might support the promotion of this statement and the policy goals it outlines.
— Hugh Esco, Secretary
Georgia Green Party

Expose tthe Lies: a webinar hosted by the COINTELPRO Full Disclosure Coalition to Pass HR-2998[/caption]
Today those labeled by the FBI as Black Identity Extremists, face threats much as did yesterday’s Martin, Malcolm, and the political prisoners of the Black Liberation and Anti-War Movements.
You are invited to join a 90 minute webinar “Expose The Lies”’ on March 25th, 7:30 pm Eastern Daylight time., sponsored by the COINTELPRO Full Disclosure Coalition to pass HR-2998.
Millions of pages document the disruption, lies, murder, surveillance and harassment by U.S. law enforcement of Constitutionally protected community organizing. Like the murder of Breonna Taylor, a Louisville paramedic shot in her bed or George Floyd, a loving father in Minneapolis who could not breathe, none of us are safe.

The FBI’s COINTELPRO remains one of the darkest chapters in our nation’s history. For decades, the FBI carried out covert actions and dirty tricks against social movements. COINTELPRO (Counter Intelligence Program) included among the program’s many targets, organizations such as the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, the anti-Vietnam War movement, and individuals such as Martin Luther King, Jr, as well as local, state, and federal elected officials.
There’s a bill in Congress that will open up the FBI’s files. HR 2998 would require full, public release of the FBI’s COINTELPRO files. This historic bill is an important step to reconciling with the FBI’s continued legacy of undemocratic abuses of power.
Please help us make history and expose FBI dirty tricks. Please write your member of Congress today to ask them to support this bill and to support efforts to broaden it to cover the full scope of FBI files.
