  • The diary of an environmental activist police shot and killed earlier this year is playing a crucial role in Georgia’s conspiracy case against 61 people tied to a police and fire department training center known as “Cop City”, offering an early window into the state’s approach to the prosecution.

    The Georgia deputy attorney general, John Fowler, has put forward a legal motion to enter the diary of Manuel Paez Terán, known as Tortuguita, as evidence in the Rico, or racketeering, case, sidestepping standard legal procedure while employing smear tactics and falsehoods, said observers of the case.

    “Tortuguita is dead – they’re not prosecuting Tortuguita,” said Dan Berger, a historian on social movements. “They’re trying to use the diary of somebody police killed to criminalize a whole movement. … The legal system obviously has no respect for privacy when the government seeks to criminalize thoughts and feelings. It’s very alarming.”

  • None of the Georgia State Police troopers involved in the fatal shooting of Manuel "Tortuguita" Teran will face charges, according to Stone Mountain Judicial Circuit District Attorney George R. Christian.

    Teran, who used they/them pronouns, was shot and killed by police on Jan. 18 as officers raided campgrounds occupied by environmental demonstrators who had allegedly been camping out for months to protest the development of the Atlanta Public Safety Training Center, dubbed "Cop City" by critics.

  • An American-made Abrams tank has been seen on the front-line in Ukraine for the first time, images circulated from Ukraine suggest.

  • Two ballistic missiles were fired from Houthi rebel-controlled Yemen toward a US warship in the Gulf of Aden, after the US Navy responded to a distress call from a commercial tanker that had been seized by armed individuals, the US military said Sunday.

  • Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu has claimed that Ukraine is suffering “colossal losses” on the east bank of the Dnipro river, which is occupied by Russian forces in the southern Kherson region.

  • Israel and Hamas agreed early today to a hostage release deal that will involve a four-day pause in fighting — the first cessation since Israel launched an air and ground assault on the Gaza Strip after Hamas’s Oct. 7 attack. At least 50 women and children among the estimated 240 people held hostage in Gaza will be released over that period, the Israeli government said in a statement. Israeli National Security Council Director Tzachi Hanegbi added Wednesday that the release wasn’t slated to begin until Friday. Hamas said on Telegram that the deal includes the release of 150 Palestinian women and teens from Israeli prisons, as well as “intensifying the entry of trucks for humanitarian relief, medical and fuel aid into all areas of the Gaza Strip.”

  • Prior to their capture of Dar al-Shifa hospital, the Israel Defense Forces went to great lengths to depict the medical complex as a headquarters for Hamas, from where its attacks on Israel were planned.

    The evidence produced so far falls well short of that. IDF videos have shown only modest collections of small arms, mostly assault rifles, recovered from the extensive medical complex.

    That suggests an armed presence, but not the sort of elaborate nerve centre depicted in animated graphics presented to the media before al-Shifa was seized, portraying a network of well-equipped subterranean chambers.

  • Law enforcement clashed with protesters calling for a ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas war outside of the Washington headquarters of the Democratic National Committee Wednesday night after authorities said the demonstration turned violent and lawmakers were evacuated from the building.

  • Full Breakdown Of Cop City March On Monday: The march began early Monday morning at a park several miles from the Cop City site and included between 350 and 400 marchers as well as Carnaval-sized puppets and a marching band. Dozens wore spray-painted, white jumpsuits – in homage, organizers said, to European environmental activists.

    Joel Paez and Belkis Terán warmed up the crowd – parents of Manuel Paez Terán, or “Tortuguita”, who police shot and killed on 18 January, while the activist was camping in a forested public park about a mile from the construction site. Paez told the crowd he saw them all as “family”. “I pray for the safety of everyone here”, he said. “I pray for the generations fighting for a better world.”

    The march then wound its way through the park and toward another park that butts up against the Cop City site. Police blocked a tunnel connecting the two parks, so marchers turned into a nearby neighborhood and, eventually, onto a four-lane road leading to the site’s entrance.

    Atlanta police officers in riot gear gathered in response to demonstrators protesting Cop City.

    Soon marchers were met by a line of Dekalb county police. They had shields, tear-gas guns, a dog and a tank called “The Beast”; there were officers with automatic weapons whose uniforms read “sniper”. As soon as the first line of marchers made contact with police, several officers aimed gas canisters and flash-bang grenades at the crowd. They also fired at a group of clearly-identified members of the press who were on the shoulder of the road.

    Somewhere near a dozen journalists were separated from the march. When one tried to return, an officer blocked him on the public road and said, “this is an active crime scene”. Another officer later let him return to doing his job.
