Edward Snowden will answer the public’s questions at 3pm EST today during a Q&A hosted by The Courage Foundation. Questions can be submitted on Twitter using the hashtag #AskSnowden and his responses will then appear at http://www.freesnowden.is/asksnowden.
The live chat comes exactly a week after President Barack Obama gave an address in response to the public concerns raised by Edward Snowden’s revelations about U.S. surveillance practices. In the live chat, Edward Snowden is expected to give his first reaction to the President’s speech.
Courage, formerly the Journalistic Source Protection Defence Fund, is a trust, audited by accountants Derek Rothera & Company in the UK, for the purpose of providing legal defence and campaign aid to journalistic sources.
We’ll be sure to monitor the Q&A and will report back highlights of the online exchange. If you’d like to participate but prefer to stay anon, email your questions to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll consider asking on your behalf.
