The Silk Road Trial & The War on Drugs, What You Need to Know

Jeff Durkin with We Are Change CT breaks down the Silk Road Sentencing. We break down how the Silk Road Trial is related to the War on Drugs, a U.S. Gov’t policy that has failed for decades, the implications it has on the internet, as well as future cases involving hosts of Websites. We also look at examples of previous cases involving U.S. Government intimidation and much more.

As we establish citizens groups throughout the country and world, we wish to inspire a community of truth-seekers and peacemakers through creative campaigns with a commitment of non-violence. We Are Change CT are not so much a group but an idea, an idea that “We the People” are the vehicles of these “ideas” and of the freedoms, liberties, and truths we are seeking all across the globe. An idea that captures the spirits of our forefathers who just desired freedom; that together, as residents of this planet, we grow like a snowball of truth and justice rolling down a mountain of tyranny growing bigger and stronger, recognizing the beauty in our differences and the diverseness of each other, but at the same time strengthening our cause because we learn and grow from each others individuality. Then as we learn to come together, that as one, you, me, him, her, us…will realize that WE ARE CHANGE.

Jeff Durkin

We're a group of homegrown journalists, activists and artists dedicated to smashing through the illusion which has been craftily constructed around our society. ~We Are Change Connecticut.
