Toward Sustainable Habits and Durable Prosperity
Occupy Atlanta announced last week that it would reoccupy Woodruff/Troy Davis Park Saturday, Nov. 5th, on Bank Transfer Day. These are some of the pictures I took on the evening of that day when the Atlanta police was reinforcing barricades on the west side of the park while the number of policemen was slowing growing on the East side of the park. The plan was simple, at 11:00 PM, the police would move in and pick up whoever would be sitting in the middle of the park waiting to be arrested. In the event of any kind of complication, the police would be able to trap protesters between the double fences on the West side and the police force gathered on the East side.
In these pictures, we see a violonist playing Your Guardian Angel by The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, and relaxed police officers confident that the evacuation of the peaceful protesters in the park was going to be quick and easy. What was to happen next was to be a complete surprise.
