Glenn Greenwald has, especially over recent weeks, been shaking the national security state to its foundations. It is due to his work the US army has blocked access to Guardian website to preserve ‘network hygiene’
In the video below Greenwald explains Edward Snowden’s personal sacrifice for a better world, in revealing the United States and UK government and security services’ criminal scheme to destroy personal privacy and undermine democracy.
Greenwald reveals in this interview, for the first time, that the NSA has developed a globalised surveillance system which, with brand new technology, is capable of redirecting into its depository 1 billion cell phone calls every day.
As Greenwald explains, these revelations are throwing as much light on the corrupt nature of the US media and political system as on the NSA.
As Greenwald further makes clear, courage is contagious and it is up to all of us (and particularly human rights defenders) to defend Snowden, hold him up as an example and speak up against the imposition of a Orwellian state.
