One of our most prolific writers, Logan Marie Glitterbomb, is currently facing charges in Florida for self-defense. We’re calling on you, our friends and supporters, to help us raise funds for Logan’s legal fees in order to keep her out of prison. We need to raise approximately $10,000 to cover legal defense and related expenses.
Long-time readers will know Logan’s work well, as her writing has formed the backbone of our commentary section for quite a while. And Logan’s work as an activist in her own community has been influential as well, most notably through her Coup de Main project, an intentional community meant to serve as a safe haven for queer and houseless folks as well as a resource base for local activism.
Now it’s our turn to return the favor and show her the support she’s shown her community for so long.
Logan is currently facing firearms charges in Florida, after an altercation where she and a friend were attacked by members and supporters of the St. Augustine Patriots over a Black Lives Matter facemask. Logan let them know she had a gun to discourage attack and this successfully prevented the situation from escalating. Logan was later pulled over and questioned and now warrants have been issued for several related charges.
This was a clear-cut case of self defense, which resulted in no harm to anyone, and arguably prevented an assault. This is the textbook reason for the existence of gun rights.
So, we’ve taken up this fundraising effort not only because Logan is a deeply loved member of our team, but because the issues at play should be of great importance to anarchists generally. The right to defend oneself is perhaps the most basic measure of human freedom. Help us defend Logan’s right to self defense and support her through this by donating whatever you can.
In particular, Logan is living with chronic health issues that, on top of being trans, would make a prison stay very dangerous for her. We all know how terrible prisons are at getting people the meds they need and Logan’s currently relying on quite a few medications as well as a specialized diet to survive. This is why it’s so imperative that she’s able to access competent legal support and successfully advocate for her right to self defense.
Please share widely and give what you can!
And remember, we keep us safe.
