USA: Edward Snowden

United States

His courage changed the world

When Edward Snowden shared USA intelligence documents with journalists in June 2013, he revealed the shocking extent of global mass surveillance. He’s a hero, not a traitor. The charges Edward Snowden faces under the Espionage Act are outdated and ill-equipped to deal with the circumstances of his case. He faces decades in prison, accused of selling secrets to enemies of the USA. With no guarantee of a fair trial in his home country, he is living in limbo in Russia.

Act Now

  • Send a message to President Obama at asking him to pardon Edward Snowden, a whistleblower who acted solely in the public interest, before he leaves office in January 2017.
