At least eight far-left extremists have been arrested after they allegedly threw rocks and Molotov cocktails at Atlanta police responding to an ongoing protest in forested area where a new police and EMS training facility will be built.

The group, who have dubbed themselves the "forest defenders," have set up camp on the grounds, which are set aside for the 85-acre project, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The Atlanta police said that a number of illegal structures had been built on the property, which is owned by the city.




During Tuesday’s press conference, Schierbaum noted that the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) was in attendance, adding that those who had been arrested and claimed to be from the local area were actually responding to calls for the occupation of the land from out of state.

GoFundMe fundraisers have been set up by other far-left activists to fund travel to the Atlanta forrest.
