SC Green Party Resolution on Whistleblower, Edward Snowden

The South Carolina Green Party Steering Committee passed unanimously the following resolution on Edward Snowden.

Edward Snowden, NSA whistleblower

Edward Snowden, whistleblower.

The South Carolina Green Party is appalled by recent revelations of the unconscionable and almost certainly unconstitutional surveillance of the National Security Agency into innocuous communications between private citizens.

Furthermore, we concur with former President Jimmy Carter’s assessment of Edward Snowden as an American hero—not a traitor as he has been falsely and unfairly portrayed by the Obama administration. We hope Snowden will be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

Resources on Edward Snowden and the impact of his revelations are available via the Guardian newspaper, which has received documents from Snowden on the activities of the National Security Agency.
