'France must give refuge to Edward Snowden'

   


Posted at 7am on Tuesday on the website Change.org by French daily L’Express, the petition had garnered over 33,000 signatures and counting by 5:30pm.

The petition, which comes one month before Snowden's visa expires in Russia, has the backing of 53 personalities including former French Prime Minister Michel Rocard, co-founder of Médecins Sans Frontières Bernard Kouchner, co-founder of Yves Saint Laurent Couture House Pierre Bergé and philosopher Edgar Morin.

"Edward Snowden's revelations have shown that the massive collection of data by the NSA about citizens all over the world, went beyond the necessary fight against terrorism or against other geopolitical risks. As a whisteblower, Snowden managed to inform the general public of these aberrations, by placing the public interest and ethics above that of the reason of the state," read a letter published on the petition website.
