S. America Countries Uniting For Snowden’s Escape From ‘Empire Persecution’

Before It’s News – by Deborah Dupre

While Nicaragua and Venezuela presidents on Friday offered asylum to Edward Snowden, more Latin American countries have said they aim to do the same, pitting South America against North America over “persecution by the empire,” as Venezuela head of state called the U.S. abuse of the human rights global violation whistleblower.

One day after South American leaders gathered to denounce the skyjacking of Bolivian President Evo Morales’ plane over Europe and searching it for surveillance abuse whistleblower Edward Snowden, Nicaragua and Venezuela presidents offered asylum to Snowden.  

Nicolas Maduro of Venezuela and Daniel Ortega of Nicaragua declared in separate speeches that they are offering to Snowden humanitarian safe haven.

“As head of state, the government of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela decided to offer humanitarian asylum to the young American Edward Snowden so that he can live in the homeland” of independence leader Simon Bolivar and the late President Hugo Chavez without “persecution from the empire,” Maduro said, referring to the United States.

Ortega said, “We have the sovereign right to help a person who felt remorse after finding out how the United States was using technology to spy on the whole world, and especially its European allies.”

Neither Nicaragua or Venezuela have direct flights from Moscow.


The Obama administration has not admitted responsibility for warning European countries about Snowden possibly being with Moreles on the plane or skyjacking it, forcing it to land in Austria, and searching it.

Obama has said he would not be “scrambling jets to get a 29-year-old hacker.”

His administration has justified the U.S. spying on the world.

Obama’s message to the world is that he intends to continue persecuting Snowden for telling the world the truth about the U.S. illegal surveillance issues.

Latin America’s message to Obama and the world is that it will not be bullied.

Other South American countries’ leaders have said, according to the ABC News, they intend to offer asylum to Snowden for the cause of “dignity,” a human right.

  1. Central/ South America has been suffering at the hands of America for well over a century. The most bloody persecutions have taken place under German jew Henry Kissinger’s direction.

    These people have complete contempt for America and the jewish people in general. Until a ‘strong, reputable Jew’ takes charge and puts a stop to ‘zionist criminality’ the jewish people are doomed.

    No, they won’t take down the world with them. 😉

  2. Grandstanding; trying to grab some propaganda points by pretending to support freedom and openness in government. The governments of all three of the countries listed are equally as corrupt as the US gov’t, just poorer and less efficient. Any whistleblower from their intelligence departments would face a far worse fate than Snowden is looking at should he be returned to the US.

    Snowden will find this out quickly enough if he ends up in South America. Worse for him will be that no South American country will be able to offer him safety or protection; they simply are not capable of it nor do they care.

  3. After WW2 many Nazis on the run went to South America but our Nazis have pissed in that bed. Where will they go? At least they’ll be easier to hunt down.
