The construction site of Atlanta's future Public Safety Training Facility – dubbed “Cop City” – has been attacked by Antifa-affiliated leftists. At least one construction vehicle was set ablaze.

Antifa Mastadon “news” account posted: “Forest defenders have taken over the police surveillance outpost on the power line clearing near Intrenchment Creek. Police retreated after crowd arrived at barbed wire fence and shot fireworks into the area.”

Reporter Billy Heath tweeted “CONSTRUCTION SITE BURNS: Huge plumes of smoke and massive police response after @defendATLforest / #StopCopCity protesters face off with police at the site of Atlanta’s future Public Safety Training Facility. I’m told Molotov cocktails were thrown. Construction equipment is on fire now. This is on Key Road SE. Police are moving quickly to various areas across the expansive site. #BREAKING #ATL #ATLANTA

TPM Senior Editor Andy Ngo pointed out that today's direct action was preplanned with a “week of action” promoted on Twitter: “The violent attacks in #Atlanta today were organized. The direct actions were promoted weeks ago on the main account of the group representing the domestic terrorism movement to use violence to prevent a first responder training center southeast of Atlanta.”
