“Snowden Treaty” drafted to end mass surveillance, protect whistleblowers worldwide

Two years after Edward Snowden leaked information about the US government’s mass surveillance to reporter Glenn Greenwald, the two were joined by other journalists and leaders to draft an international pact for privacy rights called the Snowden Treaty.

Officially called The International Treaty on the Right to Privacy, Protection Against Improper Surveillance and Protection of Whistleblowers, the global agreement seeks to “curtail mass surveillance and protect the rights of whistleblowers,” according to the website.
