K.O. drops/Date rape drugs at Walpugisnight Party
SOMEBODY USED K.O. DROPS/DATE RAPE DRUGS/GHB AT OUR EVENT!!!!
On the 30th April at our Walpurgisnight party, one woman, and we believe others too, had her drink spiked and had to go to hospital. We are really shocked, upset and angry that a person violated our safer space in this way. Not only was this a violation, this was also a very dangerous act and could have resulted in worse injury. It is important to remember that whilst FLTI people tend to blame themselves for incidents such as these, it is never their fault, its always the fault of the perpetrator. Moving forward, we have already changed our awareness concept. We are also planning to have detection tests at future events, so please ask a member of the Awareness Team or at the bar if you feel unsure about your drink. However, we want to inform you of this incident to make you aware that even if we try our best, our space can never be as safe as we would hope. If anyone at the party felt uncomfortable or believe something happened to them, or have suggestions about how we can improve the safety of our events, please contact us. We are constantly learning how best to navigate our space through this oppressive society.
