I Stand With Snowden, New York City, 10 June

One of the first demonstrations of support for Edward Snowden came only a few days after he went public. Held in New York City’s Union Square at noon on 10 June, “I Stand With Snowden” gathered civil liberties activists and concerned citizens, and was the first event of its kind to show “concern for Snowden’s welfare”.

“This is a war on freedom of speech, association and press”, said the Facebook announcement. The event was reported by Common Dreams.
