Bloods and Crips find common cause in Occupy Atlanta

Blood and Crips unite over Occupy Atlanta

occupy atlanta

Sherrod Britton and Shabaka Addae Guillory

Sherrod Britton, 29, was initiated into the Bloods when he was 18 years old. He joined because he felt lost and wanted to be a part of something.

Sherrod was walking down Peachtree Street past Troy Davis three weeks ago and saw all the tents. "I wanted to know what was going on, so I stopped by, I haven't left since", said Sherrod.

Sherrod expressed feeling a deep connection to the message and process of Occupy Atlanta." I stayed for the common cause, speaking for the people. I feel strongly that we have the right to jobs, health care, and affordable higher education."
