State of Surveillance

In this special VICE manages to get an exclusive interview with none other than NSA whistleblower, Edward Snowden. Snowden if you don’t already know was the individual responsible for leaking details on a massive government surveillance operation which targeted America citizens back in 2013.

His actions ignited a raging debate over digital privacy and security, a debate which is still very much burning today having come to a head this year when Apple refused an FBI court order to access the iPhone of alleged San Bernardino Terrorist Syed Farook.

Meanwhile, journalists and activists are coming under increasing attack from foreign agents and in order to find out what the government’s real capabilities are, and whether any of us can truly protect our sensitive information, VICE’s founder Shane Smith travels to Moscow in order to meet up with the man who started it all, Edward Snowden.
