ESFL Conference in Batumi

Our largest event in May was a massive success. With over 150 attendees, Batumi Conference was the 4th ESFL Conference in Georgia. First 3 took place in Tbilisi and were marked as the largest student gatherings in the region. Discussed topics included current issues, such as the role of the government in a free society, importance of individual freedom, free market economy, understanding of libertarian ideas and more.

Check out David Friedman’s lecture and all the other videos from the conference.

Protest against human rights violations in Chechnya

In April, ESFL leaders from all around Europe created a video in order to bring more attention to the current situation of LGBT people in Chechnya and to support #Chechnya100. Following this campaign, our leaders form Lithuania attended a protest against human rights and violations in Chechnya.
