UCLA Asks President Obama to
Grant Edward Snowden Clemency
“Edward Snowden is a great American who deserves clemency for his patriotic acts. And we’re proud to serve as his legal advisers.
When Snowden blew the whistle on the NSA, he single handedly reignited a global debate about government surveillance and our most fundamental rights as individuals.
For more than 12 years, the ACLU has been fighting to end government surveillance that invades the rights and lives of millions of Americans with virtually no oversight. But several years ago, when our case against mass surveillance finally reached the Supreme Court, it was dismissed for lack of evidence of the secret programs. Snowden provided that evidence, at great personal risk.”
