Organizer/AuthorCurt
Bay Area chapters of Code Pink and World Can't Wait invite you to participate in a worldwide reading of texts about surveillance, sponsored by the International Literature Festival Berlin.

This is not a Library Sponsored Program. Please call Curt at 818-480-1860 to register as a reader. Selected text includes two statements published in Glenn Greenwald's book No Place to Hide.

Excerpt of statement from event organizers: With this worldwide reading, we call on the United States Government to recognize that Edward Snowden's revelations are of essential importance for the safeguarding of democracy in the digital age, and thus that his actions must be seen to be covered by the Universal Unwritten Rule of the Ethical Right. Washington should therefore immediately lift all legal charges and complaints against Snowden, so that he can return home safely as a free man.

We further demand that the Member States of the European Union, in recognition of the importance of his revelations, immediately grant Edward Snowden asylum in the EU, for as long as he may need it and at least until the US Government has lifted all charges against him. Finally, we ask that the Nobel Committee consider Edward Snowden for the Nobel Peace Prize - in recognition of his amazing, selfless service towards democracy, freedom and peace for all of us.
