Edward Snowden wins Swedish human rights award for NSA revelations
Whistleblower Edward #Snowden received several standing ovations in the Swedish parliament after being given the Right Livelihood award for his revelations of the scale of state surveillance.
Snowden, who is in exile in Russia, addressed the parliament by video from Moscow. In a symbolic gesture, his family and supporters said no one picked up the award on his behalf in the hope that one day he might be free to travel to Sweden to receive it in person.

The Guardian drives me insane in its biases. What pray do they have to say about the impending release of Jay Pollard? Perhaps the Swedes will award a prize to Pollard after his release.
True, but that was last year. It is not new news, but old news. “Olds”?
Yes, thank you for pointing that out, Magnus.
