Edward Snowden Set to Address N.H. Free State Convention

A four-day convention of libertarian activists is getting underway in New Hampshire, highlighted by a video link discussion with former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden. 

Organizers of the Free State Project say they've reached their 20,000th pledge from like-minded libertarians vowing to move to the Granite State and work to limit the government's interference in their lives. 

The New Hampshire Liberty Forum in Manchester starts Thursday, with discussions on such topics as "Ensuring the Human Rights of Sex Workers by Decriminalizing Adult Prostitution," "Anarchy: Dressing for Success," and "Math Education in the Free State."

Snowden, scheduled to speak Saturday, leaked millions of documents about government surveillance to a United Kingdom newspaper in 2013.

He's been living in Russia under a grant of asylum and faces charges in the U.S.
