2013-08-12 Announcing the Snowden Defence Fund

Edward Snowden has been selected as the first source to be aided by the new Journalistic Source Protection Defence Fund. The JSPDF is administered by Derek Rothera & Company Charted Accountants of the United Kingdom. Details of how you can donate follow.

The Journalistic Source Protection Defence Fund will periodically nominate sources to which you can direct legal and campaign aid. The first source so chosen is Edward Snowden. Edward Snowden is currently in Russia where he has been granted temporary asylum. Snowden's legal defence and its associated public campaign will be a long and expensive journey. He needs your support.

Support the right to know. Support Edward Snowden.
