Watch Edward Snowden’s Christmas message to the world
Former NSA contractor Edward Snowden recorded a Christmas video message for Britian’s public television station, Channel 4. In his message, Snowden warns of a future where there will be no privacy due to intrusive surveillance. “A child born today will grow up with no conception of privacy, at all,” he explains. Snowden asks viewers to join him in pressuring governments to end mass surveillance.
Snowden was in the news earlier this week, when he told the Washington Post he felt his mission of educating the public about surveillance was accomplished.
On Tuesday, Jeffrey Brown spoke with the Washington Post’s Barton Gellman, who interviewed Snowden in Moscow.
