Protect whistle-blowers like Edward Snowden

To be delivered to The United States House of Representatives, The United States Senate, and President Barack Obama

Petition Statement

Congress and President Obama should protect, not prosecute, whistle-blowers like Edward Snowden who courageously reveal government crimes and wrongdoing.
There are currently 295 signatures. NEW goal - We need 300 signatures!

Petition Background

On Sunday, 29-year-old Edward Snowden outed himself as the person who informed the public that our government is spying on us and lying to us.

Edward Snowden revealed the elements of a crime. That makes him a whistle-blower, and he deserves our full support.

Mr. Snowden revealed limited information to corroborate his allegations, without revealing details regarding a specific operation. He exposed criminal misconduct. Whistle-blowers with Mr. Snowden's courage must be fully protected -- not prosecuted.

Tell Congress and President Obama to protect whistle-blowers.
