On September 27th, at 8:00 PM EST, Students For Liberty is teaming up with Young Americans for Liberty and Students for Sensible Drug Policy to bring you the Campus Debut of Deep Web. The movie tells the story of Ross Ulbricht’s efforts to create the “Silk Road” online market, which ended with his 2013 arrest.
Due to the manner in which the government collected its evidence to incriminate Ross, controversy still surrounds the ruling, and members of the #FreeRoss movement are demanding his release. Ross’s story touches on a number of important issues for modern libertarians, including the drug war, Internet privacy, non-state institutions, and exciting new technologies like crypto-currency.
For a personal touch, we’ll also be hosting a live, post-screening interview with Ross’s mother Lyn Ulbricht and the Director of Deep Web, Alex Winter!
You can also apply for a Students For Liberty “Get Out the Liberty” grant of up to $250 for any promotion, setup, or additions to this event. Whether you’d like to provide popcorn for viewers, or print fliers to get the word out, apply for your GOTL grant today.
