University of Virginia Update–Pedobear Protest

YAL at the University of Virginia has gotten off to a great start.  This last weekend we opened up with some anti-TSA activism that ended up getting on the front page of Reddit, racking up over 200,000 views so far.  We also managed to get the picture of one of the many posters we put up on the Huffington Post, which definitely came as a surprise.

Until now, things have gone a little slowly for our chapter.  For the most part, we were limited to tabling with Nolan’s World’s Smallest Political Quiz, pitching heavily to people with liberty-minded perspectives to come and check out our group and trying to influence the views of those with contrary opinions.

 

Now that we have been approved, we have quickly gotten on the move.  On the night of the 21st, a group of our members got to work putting up Pedo-Bear posters in high traffic areas around Grounds.  We woke up the next morning to hear students discussing the posters, laughing collectively, and beginning to wake up to the reality of the new TSA scanning measures.

 

Surveying the hard work.

 Even though the UVA chapter is a very new chapter, students on grounds (and around the country thanks to the internet coverage) are now aware of our presence, and we definitely plan to keep up the pressure on the TSA when we return from break.
