  • OUTRAGE – Berlin Wall Replica Stolen at UNC!

    11/10/2010 10:09:13 AM Posted by Evan Gassman

    Berlin Wall 2Seriously, who steals a 6 foot by 6 foot replica of the Berlin Wall?

    Yesterday morning at UNC, the conservative group on campus reported their Berlin Wall replica missing. The replica was going to be torn down Tuesday night in celebration of World Freedom Day (i.e., the anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall), but with the wall missing, the festivities were completely canceled.

    The replica was made of cardboard and wood, and cost $60 to make. There are currently no leads. At the risk of editorializing, it is highly unlikely that a single person could carry away such a large structure. In other words, this had to have been a group effort, possibly with nefarious intentions.

    The conservative group’s leader, Anthony Dent, told the school’s newspaper, the Daily Tarheel: “That’s just kind of sad. After a while, you kind of get used to putting up with that kind of behavior, but the Berlin Wall falling should be one of the most [non-polarizing] events in world history.”

    Agreed. Freedom Week celebrations have a history of students with differences joining together to celebrate. Apparently, a select few students at UNC did not want to participate in a global celebration of freedom. How unfortunate.

    Here is an update list of schools participating in Freedom Week. There have been no other reported incidents like this occurring:
