It’s way too easy for you and me, living our daily lives, to overlook the personal hardships whistleblowers are going through everyday just so we can keep America a true democracy.
Edward Snowden is still living in exile. Thomas Drake was indicted, lost his job and his pension. Franz Gayle is the target of ongoing investigations and lost the career he loved.
Next Thursday, July 30th is National Whistleblower Appreciation Day – a time to honor whistleblowers and push for the de-criminalization of truth telling.
Together we can call for an end to the unjust persecution of whistleblowers. Due to ongoing efforts to lift up the voices and heroic acts of whistleblowers, there are rumors that Edward Snowden may be able to return home if granted a plea deal! We will continue to demand that the Department of Justice stop persecuting Edward Snowden by dropping charges against him.
So let’s keep up the pressure and keep creating new activists to join this critical fight to preserve our democracy!
Onward, Robert Greenwald, President
