Atlanta instituted an emergency mode and mobilized the National Guard

Georgia’s state authorities imposed emergency mode and mobilized the National Guard. Emergency measures have been taken because of the riots in Atlanta. About 1,000 members of the National Guard are involved in establishing order.

On the eve, protesters attacked the Public Security Department building. About 100 vandals were launching fireworks at the headquarters windows. Last few days rallies spontaneously took place in different parts of Atlanta. Protesters are calling for accountability for the murder of African-American Rayshard Brooks, who was shot and killed by police.
