YAL’s Generation of War Project provided the opportunity for the University of North Carolina Young Americans for Liberty to team up with the UNC Students for a Democratic Society, a group we don’t always see eye-to-eye with. With their help, we marked ten years of war in Iraq and discussed the present and future state of warfare.
After a day of tabling in the busiest quad on campus, we hosted an event featuring Jacob Hornberger, President of the Future of Freedom Foundation, and Prashanth Kamalakanthan, a Duke student and prominent anti-war activist. Buzz on campus, great speakers, and media attention together made the event a great success!
Sporting our brand new club t-shirts, we took the quad to pass out literature and talk to students about the economic, political, and social costs of perpetual/unconstitutional warfare. Our t-shirts and literature were quite a hit. The t-shirts play off of “don’t tase me bro” and feature the Gadsden flag, “don’t DRONE me, bro”, and “UNC YAL.”
