5th of July Foundation considers whistleblowers and independent voices and journalists to be important catalysts for building a free society.
There is now a Kickstarter project to bring Glenn Greenwald to Sweden for an important media conference, together with Peter Sunde of the Pirate Bay and Julia Reda, Member of European Parliament for the Pirate Party (Germany). The topic is internet freedom. Greenwald is, as you may know, the journalist that was chosen by Edward Snowden to be his confidante and messenger.
Today this foundation has pledged 15.000 SEK (Swedish kronor) to bring Glenn Greenwald here. We believe that the media focus this would bring to these issues is exactly what this foundation wishes to promote.
We would urge other actors to contribute in order to make this event possible!
