These brave refugees who sheltered @Snowden are only safe today because of hundreds of small donors who kept them fed and housed for the last five years. Now, we need your help to get them settled and help Ajith, who remains in Hong Kong. Please donate: fortherefugees.com

We're still waiting on the Canadian government to process the application of Ajith, the last Snowden refugee remaining in Hong Kong. His safety continues to be at risk, and we are renewing our call for the govt to expedite processing and reunite these brave refugees in Canada.

Surely America isn't happy about us doing this. Feels like a dumb move.
