Liberty Quotation: Edward Snowden on the Price of Free Speech

Quote Posted on Updated on

Edward Snowden in his interview with the German TV station ARD, which was broadcast on 26 January.“The price for my speech was my passport, but I would pay it again:  I will not be the one to ignore criminality for the sake of political comfort.  I would rather be without a state than without a voice.”

Edward Snowden, in an open letter to the citizens of Brazil in Folha de São Paolo, 17 December 2013.
