US whistleblower Snowden nominated for EU’s human rights award

US whistleblower Edward Snowden has been nominated for the EU's top human rights award, worth €50.000. A former US Security Agency employee, Snowden was shortlisted on Tuesday by the Greens in the European Parliament. The nomination comes after he revealed earlier in June that the US government had been carrying out mass surveillance programmes on citizens and governments.
