BOYCOTT MEDUSA’S BAR
I am writing to encourage you to support to not Medusa’s Bar and Restaurant at Sandy Park off Hope Road(behind Cooyah). On Wednesday night five friends (three guys and two girls) were quietly having a dinner and drinks when the owner, Jason Lee along employees viciously attacked them in the parking lot as they proceeded to leave after paying their bill.
He accused them of being homosexuals and lesbians after which he started beat them mercilessly, he was further joined be joined by other five of his friends and employees.
After a good pounding, leaving one the near unconscious they tried to make their escape and even then the men were still bludgeoning them. After this ordeal they all had to seek medical attention with two seeking further specialised care for broken bones and potential brain damage.
This should never happen but the fact is that does, lets stand in solidarity of this act of homophobic violence by not supporting Medusa and sharing this email to all your friends.
Let me also add that many would think that only some of us would be victims of these but these guys were far from your ‘typical’ profile. We have to take a stand, the fact this could have been any one of us.
