    Appreciate all the follows my fellow #Silver friends! All we want is free markets and fair for as many participants as possible. I’m a firm believer that once we can break the PAPER SILVER price we can begin to get back to an actual free market.No hate, just want freedom.

No mention of ETFs accounting for nearly all silver held in London LBMA vaults. No mention of SLV prospectus change. No mention of bullion bank attacks on COMEX silver price, etc
