The Free Snowden website launched today to help the whistleblower cover his legal costs. The Journalistic Source Protection Defence Fund trustees commissioned the website which provides a plethora of detail about Snowden’s revelations, threats from the US government, and his arduous journey to finally reaching asylum in Russia.

We’ve covered the Snowden debacle closely when it broke back in June (see here). Snowden handed over documents to Glenn Grunwald, at the time journalist for The Guardian who recently left to pursue a “once in a lifetime opportunity”. Snowden’s documents revealed  warantless mass surveillance from the US, UK, Israel, and Germany on both domestic and international citizens – including organizations such as the UN and and EU.

Snowden is currently residing in Russia with Wikileaks reporter Sarah Harrisson, where he was granted a year-long asylum which is to end on July 31, 2014.
