Wed. September 19: First Amendment Free Food Festival in Library 11am-1pm

First Amendment Free Food Festival set for Wednesday

The Indiana Statesman and the American Democracy Project will host the First Amendment Free Food Festival Wednesday in conjunction with Constitution Week. The event will give students a glimpse of a world without some of the basic freedoms they take for granted.

Students will convert Cunningham Memorial Library into the country of where there is no respect for religion and no protection in place for speaking freely or gathering with friends. It’s also a world where the press has no freedom to report news without heavy-handed government intervention.

Student demonstrators will be protesting Treelandia’s government, and Treelandia law enforcement will “jail” those who try to maintain those American First Amendment freedoms. A talkback session will allow students to ask questions and gain more information about what they experience during the event.

The event takes place Wednesday between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. in the Events Area of Cunningham Memorial Library.
