Ross Ulbricht on Trial: Protesters Defend Silk Road
NEW YORK (InsideBitcoins) – There numbers may have been few, but their complaints were many. Protestors gathered yesterday to show support for Ross Ulbricht as he went on trial, accused of being the brains behind Silk Road, the underground illegal drugs marketplace shut down by federal authorities in November 2013.
Members from the CopBlock.org team, jury nullification protesters and bitcoin enthusiasts showed up to protest outside the courtroom with an assortment of signs. One sign read, ‘Today’s villain, tomorrow’s hero,’ while another said, ‘No victim, no crime.’
