No Memorials to Freedom Allowed Here! by The Elephant's Child

Students belonging to Young Americans for Liberty at Washington University in St. Louis hosted a rally to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall today, on the campus lawn.

The students set up a gulag complete with prisoners, guards and barbed wire on the Washington University campus. They constructed a memorial to the victims of socialism as a reminder of the horrors of socialism and in memory of its victims. Junior Dirk Doebler, student leader of Young Americans for Liberty said:

We’re hoping to elevate the thinking of students about the connection between socialism, tyranny, and murder.  Too often we tend to think about state control in the abstract.  This event is an opportunity to show the student body what socialism really is.  We’re just 20 years away from the collapse of the Soviet Union’s despotic enslavement of hundreds of millions of people, yet everyone seems to forget that socialism killed over 150,000,000 people in the 20th century.

So, naturally, the University shut it down.
