Drop the charges against Glenn Greenwald

By charging Glenn Greenwald with a cybercrime, the government of Brazil has essentially criminalized engaging in legitimate journalistic practices, which threatens to have a chilling effect on journalists and sources alike.

Please add your name to this petition:

We stand with Glenn Greenwald and The Intercept’s team in Brazil and demand that prosecutors respect press freedom and drop this blatant politically motivated charge.
