George Bastos

Bio: Joined the freedom movement in 2016, becoming the local coordinator for Students For Liberty in Pernambuco while being a member of Clube Frei Caneca. Organized protests in the city of Recife advocating for the impeachment of Dilma Rousseff, and in 2020, founded UJL (Union, Youth, and Freedom), the largest group affiliated with Students For Liberty worldwide.

Worked as a parliamentary advisor (staffer) for Daniel José in the Legislative Assembly of the State of São Paulo, and in 2022, was the most voted libertarian candidate for federal congressman in the entire northeastern region of Brazil.

Favorite figures in Liberty: Milton Friedman, José Guilherme Merquior and Friedrich Hayek

On Students For Liberty: “In SFL, I learned that achieving great feats is much easier when you are in good company.

The organization changed my life, allowing me to meet extraordinary people from all over Brazil (and the world), and enabling me to establish UJL.

Knowing that I am contributing to a freer world is what drives me. Without Students For Liberty Brazil, none of this would be possible.”

Students For Liberty is the largest pro-liberty student organization in the world.
