From Let Luke Go
At sentencing, Judge Markle added the condition of criminal banishment to Luke’s probation. For all eight years of his probation, Luke will be exiled from the state of Georgia, with the exception of one judicial district – that of Screven county, and in turn, his family and closest friends. For more information on criminal banishment and the unusual nature of its inclusion in Luke’s sentence click here.
All of Luke’s supporters are encouraged to print and fill out one of these postcards, or hand write their own, and mail them to Judge Markle, demanding that he remove the condition of banishment from Luke’s probation.
You can also download the postcard here.

He wouldn’t have gotten the birthday cards that were sent,
as his mail doesn’t follow him, it is just trashed. So please send him
another card to let him know we care.

Anarchists Target Chapel Hill Police Headquarters in Solidarity with Luke O’Donovan and Ferguson Rioters
(Blog editors’ note: this story was reposted from anarchistnews.org and is not original content of the Prison Books Collective. We thought this was quite obvious, but local journalists seem to be having a problem with this.)
From Anarchist News
In the early hours of August 14th, three police cruisers were smashed out at the Chapel Hill Police Department Headquarters in Chapel Hill, NC. A message was also painted on one of the cars, reading, “For Luke.”
This was done as a small gesture of solidarity with Luke O’Donovan, of Atlanta, GA, who was recently sentenced to two years in prison for defending himself against five homophobic attackers. We hope this brings a smile to his face.
We also carried out this act in solidarity with the rioters and looters of Ferguson, MO, who, in the face of continued brutality by racist police, have inspired the world with their courageous resistance against the forces of state, capital, and white supremacy. May their insurrection spread.
Both as small groups and entire neighborhoods, it is possible to fight back.

Over the last few hours thousands of dollars have been streaming in from all over the world to support those arrested over the last few days in Ferguson, Missouri. This support is incredible and breath-taking, and sadly our previous link is not set-up to handle this level of activity.
Please, please, please, circulate this new link and continue donating.
Original call for donations:
A bail and legal fund has been established to support the 43 or so people who have been arrested during the anti-police demonstrations in Ferguson, Mo. Please spread the word widely and help us get some money together to get these people out.
All funds collected will be used to support those arrested during the demonstrations–their bail money, fines, legal funds, or other related expenses. In the unlikely event that there are additional funds, they will be used to support people resisting police repression and police violence in the future. Thank you.

On the afternoon of Saturday, August 9th, 2014 an 18 year old, unarmed teenager named Mike “Mike Mike” Brown was murdered by a Ferguson Police Department cop. He was shot in the back and the head, as he knelt on the street with his hands in the air in the middle of a densely populated apartment complex. Hundreds of residents immediately gathered around the site of his murder, spilling out onto the main street, W. Florissant, and partially blocking it. Mourners at the site were met with assault rifles and police dogs, while police shut down access to the city. The following night, Sunday, August 10th, another candlelight vigil was called. This event, attended by over a thousand, quickly and naturally evolved into something else. What follows is a compilation of first person accounts of the event.
This is not the only account of what happened. If you were there last night, tell your own story. Share it with friends and send it to email@example.com Read more…
