At UC Irvine, a war between the students and the student leaders is being waged. The students want to have Old Glory banned from the student union and private areas under the demands that it stands for imperialism and colonialism. The student leaders see it as a symbol of freedom and prosperity.
“UC Irvine student leaders on Saturday vetoed a resolution that banned the American flag from being displayed in the lobby of the student government offices, according to a post on the school’s website. The post said the “misguided legislation” passed by undergraduate members of the legislative council earlier this week was not endorsed by campus leadership or by the University of California.”
