Edward Snowden will conduct an hour long live Q&A online at 3pm ET Thursday. He is also expected to respond to President Obama’s recent speech on proposed NSA reforms, according to FreeSnowden.is, an official support site for the former NSA contractor.
This is the first Snowden live chat since June 2013 and will last for an hour starting at 8pm GMT, 3pm EST. Questions can be submitted on twitter on the day of the event using the #AskSnowden hashtag. Edward Snowden’s responses will appear at http://www.freesnowden.is/asksnowden
The live chat comes exactly a week after US President Barack Obama gave an address in response to the public concerns raised by Edward Snowden’s revelations about US surveillance practices. In the live chat, Edward Snowden is expected to give his first reaction to the President’s speech.
Snowden participated in a similar session last June, when The Guardian hosted a live Q&A and the former NSA contractor answered questions posed by several journalists, activists and general participants.
