Edward Snowden, the former NSA contractor, has been living in exile ever since he fled the United States in 2013.

He exposed the massive surveillance details of the NSA to the world with an interview with The Guardian newspaper. It was Snowden’s revelations that blew the lid off the US government’s spying activities on US citizens.

Those supporting Snowden say that his actions deserve thanks and not punishment. The campaign comes at the time when a movie starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt titled “Snowden” is set for release.
