Messages of Support for Edward Snowden
"Ed, I'm On Your Side"
In December 2016, we asked people to submit short messages explaining why they support Edward Snowden. On International Human Rights Day (December 10), we projected many of those messages onto the side of building in Washington, D.C. A selection appears below.
Due to an overwhelming number of messages of support we received, we weren’t able to display all of them on our site. We're still poring through them, and will include as many as possible in a book we'll be packaging to give to Ed directly.
"Thank you for having the courage to speak truth to power, and for your incredible sacrifice on our behalf. You are a hero."
“Thank you for your sacrifice on behalf of the people of the democratic world. Without people like you there is no democracy.”
"Cowardice is pernicious but courage is infectious. Thanks to Snowden for reminding us all to do right even when it's hard."
