Atlanta Antifa suspect reportedly worked for CNN, is daughter of UK Foreign Office consultant and Chinese pharma tycoon

One of the Antifa suspects arrested during the violence that occurred in Atlanta concerning “Cop City” this week reportedly interned at both Reuters and CNN. She is also the daughter of a UK Foreign Office consultant and a New Jersey-based Chinese pharma tycoon.

Teresa Yue Shen, 31, is allegedly part of the Atlanta terror cell, according to the Daily Mail. She was one of seven radicals who were arrested in the forest at the site of a $90 million Atlanta Public Safety Training Center during a “clearing operation” that took place last week. Police report that approximately 25 campsites were located and removed from the site. They also found mortar-style fireworks, multiple-edged weapons, pellet rifles, gas masks, and a blow torch that were recovered.

Ironically, Shen is a mental health consultant. She traveled from Brooklyn to Atlanta to protest the building of what Antifa calls “Cop City.” The planned site sparked violence last week when one of the members of “Treetop Antifa,” Manuel Esteban Paez Teran, 26, shot a Georgia State Police officer in the abdomen and was then shot and killed by officers returning fire.

She has been charged with domestic terrorism and aggravated assault of an officer. She was previously arrested during an anti-ICE demonstration at the Bergen County Jail in 2021.

The Daily Mail is reporting that her mother is a former British Foreign Office consultant and her father runs a New Jersey-based Chinese media company.

Shen’s mother, Xiao-Hua Shen, 63, was sent to the UK by the Chinese government to study at Exeter University. She speaks at events and refers to herself as a “Global Diversity Expert” who has an “in-depth knowledge” of how to do “successful business in China,” according to the Daily Mail. She has previously worked as a trainer and consultant for Lloyds of London and the British Foreign Office.

James Shen, 58, is the president of publisher WiCON. The company owns Pharma China and boasts connections to the “most multinational pharma companies” in the communist country.

The father claims that he comes from a “family with generations of ties with the pharmaceutical industry in China.” He says he is a “strategist, advisor and publisher” who specializes in China Healthcare.

The fight against “Cop City” has been going on since June 2021.

A “Night of Rage” was called for by Antifa following the shooting, threatening “reciprocal violence” against the authorities after their member was killed.

On Saturday, six protesters were busted after setting fire to items during the riots. They had explosive devices in their possession.

The Atlanta Police Department reported that Francis M. Carroll, 22, who is the son of wealthy surgeon Dr. Mike Carroll, was charged on Saturday along with Nadja Geier, 24, from Nashville, Tennessee; Madeleine Feola, 22, from Spokane, Washington; Ivan Ferguson, 23, from Nevada; Graham Evatt, 20, from Decatur, Georgia; and Emily Murphy 37, from Grosse Ile, Michigan.

Carroll was out on bail for a domestic terrorism arrest at the Atlanta autonomous zone in December. He is the son of a yacht-sailing, multimillionaire family and comes from the Maine city of Kennebunkport, according to the New York Post.

After the arrests, the Defend the Atlanta Forest group protested outside of Dekalb County Jail and set off fireworks.

Convictions for domestic terrorism carry a sentence of anywhere between five and 35 years in prison.
