Edward Snowden’s May 2016 Tour.
“A child born today will grow up with no conception of privacy at all. They’ll never know what it means to have a private moment to themselves: an unrecorded, unanalyzed thought. And that’s a problem because privacy matters; privacy is what allows us to determine who we are and who we want to be.”
In the realised Orwellian nightmare of government surveillance and data retention, individual privacy is threatened and swift justice is dealt to those who interfere with the workings of national security and intelligence. Few who risk their freedom exposing the secrets of the government dodge the repercussions, and for their own survival are forced to flee to tell their story. This is the story of Edward Snowden, told live to Australian audiences in May 2016.
