Antifa protesters in Atlanta are calling for ‘Night of Rage’ against cops after shooting near training facility dubbed ‘Cop City’ left one man dead and a state trooper injured

Violent Antifa protectors are calling for a ‘Night of Rage’ against police officers after a raid of ‘Cop City’ left an activist dead and a state trooper injured.

Georgia State Patrol troopers swooped on the autonomous zone at the site of the future $90million Atlanta Public Safety Training Center in a ‘clearing operation’ on Wednesday.

In a press conference, Georgia Bureau of Investigations director Michael Register confirmed that the shooting was in self-defense, with the protestor opening fire ‘without warning’ at the trooper.

But activists are now calling for a ‘Night of Rage’ and bloodshed against the police following the shooting – threatening to enact ‘reciprocal violence’ against the authorities.

In a statement posted on social media, the Scenes from the Atlanta Forest account said: ‘A call for retaliation. Consider this a call for reciprocal violence to be done to the police and their allies.

‘On Friday, January 20th, wherever you are, you are invited to participate in a night of rage in order to honor the memory of our fallen comrade.’

The protestors, who call themselves forest defenders, are claiming that the police have ‘murdered’ one of their own and are demanding ‘action’.

In several posts sweeping social media, they claim that the police are ‘lying’ and ‘refusing to release bodycam footage’ of the incident.

They are also angrily rejecting claims that the protestor who was killed shot at police first, and even claim that the trooper was shot in ‘friendly fire’.

In a statement, the Defend Atlanta Forest said: ‘Forest defenders on the ground say they heard a round of 12 shots fired all at once around 9:04 a.m. this morning.

‘This contradicts the back-and-forth shooting story pushed by police.

‘We have reason to believe the officer shot today was hit by ‘friendly fire’ and not by the protester who was killed.

‘Do not believe the police and their media. Demand an end to police militarization and hands off the forest.

‘The police will kill you if given the chance. Now is the time for bravery. Take care of each other. Be dangerous together.’

The Atlanta Solidarity Fund added: ‘This morning Georgia State Patrol officers killed a protester in the South Atlanta Forest. 

‘GSP has not released body camera footage or meaningful details, and we are concerned a police cover-up could be underway. We are preparing a legal team to investigate and pursue a wrongful death suit.’

Protestors are claiming that the police are 'lying' and are rejecting the narrative that one of their own shot at officers - despite members being arrested on 'domestic terrorism' charges

In May, eight militants were arrested after police patrolling the land were assaulted and pelted with rocks and Molotov cocktails.

Five people were arrested on December 13 for allegedly polotting terror attacks at the soon-to-be police academy.

Serena Hertel, 25, of California, Leonard Voiselle, 20, of Macon, Georgia, Nicholas Dean Olson, 25, of Bennington, Nebraska, Francis M. Carroll, 22, of Kennebunkport, Maine and Arieon Robinson, 21, of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, were arrested.

Left-wing groups used Twitter to fundraise bail for suspects after another six were arrested in August – charged with various crimes from burglary to criminal damage.

Members of the group tried to burn a man to death after he drove into the area, and he was forced to run for his life after they torched it with him still in it.

After their members were arrested the Defend the Atlanta Forest group held a protest outside of Dekalb County Jail and let off explosive fireworks.

The Atlanta Jail Support, a project of the Atlanta Solidarity Fund, also issued calls to fundraise bail money for the terror suspects using Twitter.

Convictions of domestic terrorism carry with it sentences of anywhere between five and 35 years in prison.
