Kudos to ALA
"In a little over an hour,[ALA]Council quickly passed a number of resolutions, including support for whistleblower Edward Snowden (CD#39), which was moved by Jim Kuhn and seconded by Mike Marlin. The motion resolved “that the American Library Association recognize Edward Snowden as a whistleblower who, in releasing information that documents government attacks on privacy, free speech, and freedom of association, has performed a valuable service in launching a national dialogue about transparency, domestic surveillance, and overclassification.” ---American Libraries Magazine
