Advocate Admir Published in Daily Caller on Bosnia

Young Voices Advocate Admir Cavalic was published in The Daily Caller on the ongoing economic unrest in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Last year, the Economist ranked Bosnia and Herzegovina among the most likely countries to experience social unrest in the 2014. At the time, no one took such predictions seriously. Unfortunately, it was only a matter of time before the Southern European country, ranked 101st in the Heritage Foundation’s Index of Economic Freedom, erupted in violence.

Advocate Christoph Published by OpenDemocracy

Young Voices Advocate Christoph Heuermann was published by Open Democracy about free migration.

For Europeans it is time to get used to this. The fear of the foreign, unfortunately even within Europe, is gratuitous. While several arguments against open borders can be brought up, none, in my opinion, stand up to scrutiny. I would like to appeal to every European: remember your luck to be born in relatively prosperous countries with the possibility to move anywhere you like to do the things you like within Europe. Why would you want to deny this to people not blessed by this luck? At least, give them their opportunity to pursue their happiness where they think they can find it. Fight for free migration! Open Borders now!

Advocate Sam Published in Huffington Post on Marijuana Decriminalization

Advocate Sam Tracy was published in The Huffington Post on marijuana decriminalization in the District of Columbia

This month, the DC Council voted 11-1 to decriminalize marijuana possession. The only vote against the bill was Councilmember Yvette Alexander’s, who claimed that removing criminal penalties would be “sending the message that it’s OK to smoke.” This all-too-common talking point needs to be put to rest. Not only does reform not promote drug use, it sends a far better message than continuing the life-destroying War on Drugs.

If signed by Mayor Gray, who has already expressed his support, DC’s decriminalization law would be one of the most progressive in the country. Rather than face arrest and possible jail time, people caught with under an ounce of marijuana would have it confiscated and pay a $25 fine. Small-time possession would remain illegal, but as a civil offense rather than criminal; the production, sale, and possession of over an ounce would remain a criminal offense.
