Tell the Norwegian Government to Let Edward Snowden Come to Norway

On November 18, Edward Snowden will be awarded Norwegian PEN's Ossietzky Prize for outstanding achievements as a whistleblower. We do not want Snowden's chair to be empty in the University Hall in Oslo due to lack of approval to travel to Oslo, as Ossietzky himself was prevented by Hitler from coming to Oslo to receive the Nobel Peace Prize in 1936.

Co-inviters behind this petition include:
Noam Chomsky, Arundhati Roy, Daniel Ellsberg, Marit Arnstad, Jesselyn Radack, Arne Ruth, Ola Larsmo, Coleen Rowley, Thomas Drake, Marsha Coleman-Adebayo, Marjorie Cohn, William Binney, William Nygaard, John Kiriakou, Moddi, and Mari Boine.

Please sign this petition to the Government of Norway:

We urge the government of Norway to ensure that NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden can safely enter Norway to receive The Ossietzky Prize, which will be formally bestowed upon Mr. Snowden by the freedom of expression group Norwegian PEN 18 November 2016. This will require that Norway commit to providing Mr. Snowden guaranteed protection from extradition to the United States.
