Snowden Backed by Protest Groups Amid Risks He Breached Law

Hong Kong civic groups plan a protest against any U.S. efforts to extradite Edward Snowden, the former National Security Agency contractor who has admitted revealing a secret U.S. electronic surveillance program.

At least 14 groups, including the Civil Human Rights Front and the League of Social Democrats, will demonstrate June 15 at the U.S. consulate in Hong Kong and the city government’s headquarters in support of Snowden, who is in the city at an undisclosed location.
