Edward Snowden on the History of Intelligence Agencies | acTVism

The Jan. 14 Freedom and Democracy panel was awesome–informative, thought-provoking, and inspiring. Granted, with six speakers, it was rather long. However, there is now a video available of the Edward Snowden portion of the panel (33 min). It’s well worth the watch.

Edward Snowden – History of Intelligence Agencies | acTVism

Hear about… The 1974 Citizens Committee to Investigate the FBI and its radical act of lawbreaking… The man who the FBI considered the most dangerous threat to national security… How the codeword “national security” is not about preventing invasion or protecting democracy… Modern whistleblowers since 9/11… Safe whistleblowing procedures… and more.

If you have the time, the full event is below. It’s all in English.

Event: Edward Snowden, Jeremy Scahill, JüRgen TodenhöFer, Paul Jay, Richard Wolff & SrećKo Horvat | acTVism Munich

      Thanks for the reblog, Paul. Snowden has some excellent thoughts to convey.

    I hope he wins his case then.

    I watched the Snowden tape yesterday and came away that he might be looking for a pardon from the new Trump Presidency. Given the Trump connection to Putin that seems possible.

        Snowden threw away his opportunity to be tried before a jury of his peers when he high-tailed it to Putin’s Russia. Every American is guaranteed the right to a fair trial by the Constitution and he is free to return at any time. No jury is going to let him go free once they’re presented with all of the evidence against him.

    Snowden isn’t a historian, just an I.T. guy who defected to Russia after stealing a bunch of secret documents unrelated to NSA spying on their behalf.
