Edward Snowden Support Rally June 14th

Friday, June 14, 2013 - 5:00pm to 7:00pm
Union Square
New York, NY 10003
United States
Edward Snowden, Whistleblower

Organizers of Friday’s rally hope the assembly will do more than lionize Snowden, we hope to use the event to continue (begin?) the conversation Snowden started regarding the preservation of 4th Amendment protections of personal privacy in an age of new media.

“As young people in the digital era, it is imperative that we have an understanding of what happens to the data we create and post, with or without our consent,”

“It’s good these revelations are happening under President Obama,” said NYC activist Astra Taylor, “so we can see that this is structural, instead of blaming a Republican villain & praying for Democratic rescue.”

These events are happening so fast, but we are actively working to create a coalition with many different organizations and individuals to support Snowden, and continue to be a critical voice of the war on Journalists, Information and our civil liberties.

Details are still being formed, we will be gathering, to state our grievances and to keep true to Snowden, that we will not be silent or complicit with the current state of affairs.
