Visualize the Debt at UGA

Sadly, our event got shut down mid-way through the day.  But, we did get a number of signatures and a lot of good media out of our efforts.  Here’s an excerpt from an editorial we put in the campus paper:

“Free speech” implies that one has the right to express oneself without interference or obstruction from a third party.

For this reason, I say that speech at UGA is inherently “unfree.”

After relocating their signs from Tate Plaza to Baxter/Lumpkin sidewalk to avoid blocking anyone’s walkway, the Young Americans for Liberty were told to leave because they were displaying signs in a “non-free speech zone.”

They left, as they were told, but the issue isn’t whether they abided by the rules — it’s whether the rules should even exist.

Read the rest here.
