World Service Authority issues world passport for Snowden

The World Service Authority (WSA), a Washington-based charity and executive branch of the World Government of World Citizens, has issued a world citizen passport for Former US national Edward Snowden, who disclosed America’s mass monitoring program, the Voice of Russia reported. 

“WSA Issues World Passport to Edward Snowden Based Upon Article 13 (2) of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights,” reads the message posted on the charity’s Twitter page.

“This unprecedented situation reveals dramatically the power of one individual versus the nation-state system, while highlighting individual sovereignty. The fact that Snowden is immobilized in a Moscow Airport Transit lounge further exposes the fiction of nation-state frontiers,” WSA’s founder Garry Davis said.

The World Government of World Citizens has been issuing its passports since September 1953, although only four countries – Mauritania, Tanzania, Ecuador and Togo – recognize these IDs.
