V/A Uncivil Disobedience - TAPEBellicose Records
This tape features some of the best bands in the southeast US hardcore punk scene providing mostly brand new/original tracks to help support the cause. Solidarity with those defending the Atlanta Forest. Tracks from BANQUET, ARMOR, ECHELON, SQUEEZE USA, FERAL, PEZ, DUMB IDEA, EXALTARIST, NAG, SNORKEL, SWEATER, SMELLS LIKE PAINT, SOURPUSS, PAPRIKA, FLASK, and BLACK WICK.
All proceeds from this album, both on bandcamp and from the tapes, go to Atlanta Solidarity Fund to help aid those fighting for liberty, forest preservation, and community autonomy. The police and city government of Atlanta is planning to tear down 300 acres of forest (some of the United States's most canopied woods) to build a police training facility the likes of which the south east has not yet seen. Make no mistake, this will not just affect those in Atlanta and Georgia. This will serve as a major base for police training, and as we've seen over the last years repeatedly, this is in no way for the betterment or safety of the surrounding communities. This is about totalitarian control. This is about police-state plans taking priority over the happiness, well-being and rightful access the local community deserves to have.

"Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit."
- Edward Abbey
"And this I believe: that the free, exploring mind of the individual human is the most valuable thing in the world. And this I would fight for: the freedom of the mind to take any direction it wishes, undirected. And this I must fight against: any idea, religion, or government which limits or destroys the individual."
- John Steinbeck , East of Eden
