Jan 2 updatge: Prison Solidartity

For those who are unaware a local Atlanta comrade is currently facing serious charges after being attacked on New Years Day. He is being held without bond. Solidarity and support are needed. Please spread the word and do whatever you can to help our friend and comrade.

Full Article Here:

 It has been reported in the press that Luke O’Donovan, 19, went on a“stabbing rampage” at a New Year’s Eve party in Reynoldstown, a neighborhood in Atlanta, GA. This is not accurate.

The events that occurred were the result of Luke O’Donovan desperately defending himself against a clear act of queer-bashing that included Luke being stabbed in the back. Although the exact sequence of events is unknown at this point, it is clear that Luke was attacked by several people at one time and retaliated in self-defense in an attempt to escape the attack. Several witnesses have reported watching between 5 and 12 men mobbing up on Luke and stomping on his head and body with the intent to kill him.

The people who were stabbed during the conflict were not attempting to end the fight with Luke. The altercation was never limited to Luke and one other person, but involved several people mobbing up on him. The motivations of the attack on Luke seem to originate in the fact that he had been seen dancing with and kissing other men earlier at the party. Luke was repeatedly insulted with homophobic slurs throughout the night.The men who attacked Luke are known to have exhibited homophobic language and behavior in the past.

 Luke was called a faggot during the fight. This provides clear evidence that the attack on Luke was in some way motivated by homophobia and perpetrated by multiple men while Luke was alone. Luke is currently the only person involved in the fight who is in jail.

 For letters of support and books for Luke, his address is:

 Luke Patrick O’Donovan #1300031 901 Rice Street Atlanta, GA 30318-4938 2S401

For Luke’s book wish list:

  1. Just because he's your comrade doesn't mean he's right. Are yall really set on skewing the facts through liberal media just because this guy has something in common with you? Were you there??? Stop spreading false facts about this supposid homophobia. Luke made a mistake, plain and simple. Demonizing people in the hospital isn't helping a single person and it won't help Luke. I beg you to remove this because it is false and quite frankly says a lot about his character for taking such a bold platform.

  2. If you're so concerned about truth, why don't you have the courage to post in your own name?

    Liberal Media? The media, brave guy hiding your identity, is all about demonizing Luke.
