A right turn on a red light is usually permissible if there is no sign stating otherwise, but usually there is no left turn on red permissible unless there is a sign stating that there is. Basically you normally can not turn left on a red light unless there is a sign at the light that clearly states "Left Turn on Red Allowed" or something similar. However, in the Georgia State Driver's Manual on page 40, #13 states:
13. It is permissible to make a left turn on a red signal from the left lane of a one way street only onto a one way street on which the traffic moves toward the driver's left. You must yield the right-of-way to pedestrians and other traffic, proceeding as directed by the signal at such intersection.

So, basically, your state driver's manual is saying you can make a left on a red light onto a one way street as long as the other situation is appropriate.
