Snowden Live

Just over three years ago, in the summer of 2013, Snowden came forward with the revelations of the NSA spying efforts against Americans. We have learned more about the full extent of surveillance in countries like the United States (NSA) and United Kingdom (GCHQ) since Snowden came forward. The US government immediately went after Snowden for treason. They went as far as grounding the plane of Bolivian President, Evo Morale, in suspicion of Snowden being on the plane. In the end Snowden was granted asylum in Russia and has been living in secret with his girlfriend in Moscow ever since. He would like to return to the United States when he feels a fair trial is possible. Perhaps the movie will help pressure officials to make that happen.

The team at ExpressVPN have put together an infographic detailing five ways Snowden changed the world.
