WHO ARE WE?

The Capital Terminus Collective is an anarchist-communist group in
Atlanta, GA. We believe that there can and will be a revolution in which
the people overthrow their rulers and create a society in which the
oppressive forces of the state have been destroyed and in which everyone
âGives according to their ability and receives according to their needâ.
We believe that a specifically anarchist organization can play an
important role in organizing for this revolution and in fighting the
âbattle of ideasâ with those who would create a new USSR or who would
subvert the revolutionary movement into the Democratic Party. We
encourage you to get in touch with us if you are interested in what

we are doing, or to receive announcements.

The Resurrection City Seven


(origionally titled: Yes, it is a crime to be poor in atlanta, Georgia)
On the night of August 14, members of the Open Door Community joined
with others in the Movement To Reclaim the Soul of Atlanta to meet
âResurrection Cityâ on the lawn of Atlanta City Hall. Advocates for the
homeless and homeless friends spent the night in prayer and protest
against the proposed âCommercial Solicitation Ordinanceâ, an ordinance
to outlaw begging in the downtown area. A growing crowd gathered at noon
on Monday, August 15 to sing and pray before the meeting of the City
Council. In the Council Chamber, we joined members of the Atlanta
Firefighters Union. As advocates spoke out for the homeless poor and the
firefighters spoke out for fairness in their wages and retirement fund
we embraced each other in common cause. One leader of the Union said to
the Council members âWhat is coming down on us and the poor in the
streets of this city is the same thing: it is the greed of Corporate
America that wants to squeeze the most out of public servants for the
least possible cost, and it wants to squeeze and criminalize the poor.â
Council President Lisa Borders excoriated all of us as we continued to
applaud and cheer for our common struggle.


The Council voted with three dissenting members to criminalize begging.
Many of us began to wail and shout âshame on the Council!â Swarms of
police officers descended on the room and pulled, dragged and pushed us
out of the room. Seven advocates were arrested, including six members of
the Open Door Community and former City Councilmember Derrick Boazman.
Atlanta Police officers, police riot squad, and members of the police
Red Dog (drug fighting) squad were exceptionally rough, even though
television cameras were rolling. We have since learned that never in the
history of the Atlanta City Council have non-violent protestors been
arrested and ejected from the council chambers.

editorâs note:

Though the Open Door Community is a religious organization, the Capital
Terminus Collective recognizes the work they do for the community and
the great sacrifices that their members and supporters make. Many of
them not only work with the homeless, they work with many peace and
justice groups and around many different issues. Even though they are
not specifically an anarchist organization, there are anarchists that
work with them and they are an official Catholic Worker House of
Hospitality.

The media work group

The Publications Working Group is set up to put out the monthly
newsletter, Anarchist Atlanta and developing and updating the CTC Web
site. Our first publication was published in September and we continue
to publish it to this day. Each article, after it is written, is
reviewed by the PWG and then published. The web site has been set up
with News and Articles written by Collective members, a blog space where
members can write about current campaigns they are working on, a forum,
for outside discussion and a calendar listing dates of the collective
and member activities. The entire web site has been reviewed and
approved by the CTC body and will soon be available for online access.


Counter Recruitment Work Group

CTC Ãs involvement in Anti-Military Recruiting will continue with
leafleting at Grady High School Basketball games beginning on
Friday,November 15th, continuing with the next two home games on
December 9th and 16th.Games begin at 7:00pm and leafleting will begin at
6:00pm on the sidewalk outside of the Gymnasium entrance on 10th Street.
This effort is in conjunction with Georgia Peace and Justice
Coalition/Atlanta. Our leaflets advise students and their parents of
their privacy rights under the No Child Left Behind Act:Access to
students private information provision. As part of the NCLB Act,there is
a provision that requires local school systems to provide access to high
school student names, addresses and phone numbers. Military recruiters
and institutions of higher education are entitled to such information
under this federal law,unless the parent or student, if over the age of
18 years, objects to such release. Parents can request or opt out their
students information by writing two letters: one to their Local Board of
Education Superintendent and a second letter to the Department of
Defense (DOD). In addition, the misleading and deceptive information
that military recruiters will use to

sell military service are described in our leaflets.

Womenâs Health Initiative

The womenâs health group is currently doing research for their flyer
campaign. Here is a partial list of the flyers they will be producing
and distributing:

* Sex tips Safe sex info
* List of free/cheap and confidential local clinics
* Herbal remedies
* Menstrual health
* Female empowerment

If you would like to help us distribute flyers, let us know. We will
send you a PDF of our flyer and you can be an active part of our venture
by distributing our flyers in bathrooms everywhere. Sex education in our
society is inadequate, especially amongst our youth.

We do have the power to educate one another!
