Edward Snowden is taking part in a question and answer session with Amnesty International in London on 2 June.

Below, we have embedded the video link to the live video stream from the event. IBTimes UK is attending the session and will be reporting back as soon as the Q&A session has concluded.

Amnesty International - and many others - are pushing for the charges brought by the US government against Snowden to be dropped, after he leaked an enormous trove of classified NSA and GCHQ documents two years ago. They documented widespread spying by government agencies on their citizens.
