King, Sylvia, and Aja are back for a (shorter) Atlanta news and politics briefing with notes and reflections on Juneteenth, the latest news in city council & its decision to Joyce Sheperd’s latest ordinance, local activism efforts to defend the forests and resist the land deal with Atlanta Police Foundation, and our regular Kasim watch and new candidate alert. The three also reflect on the 50th anniversary of the Pentagon Papers and how free press and whistleblowers are still in danger. We wonder, how great are performative politics, really?
