Incredible news from the strongest media festival in Croatia

We managed to get Edward Snowden as the first official keynote speaker at this year's Communications Days. Yes, that's what they said. I guess. We don't remember exactly, because the moment Dunja Communications Day director Ivana Ballon said this sentence, there was silence in the entire room. We all looked at each other in disbelief, and the author of this news naively asked – So how will they arrange so much insurance for him?

Fortunately, it was only necessary to think for a second longer and independently come to a conclusion that was quickly confirmed by Ballon. The man will be a guest live from Moscow via video call and answer all questions after the lecture.

In any case, this is incredible news from the strongest media festival in Croatia, to bring the most famous whistleblower of the 21st century who exposed the big affair of secret monitoring of citizens through their digital activities. Since 2013, when Snowden publicly denounced the CIA and the US National Security Service, where he was employed. He fled to Russia where he was granted asylum and where he currently lives hiding from the US authorities.

Days of communication will be held in the Croatian Paris of Rovinj from April 20 to 23, 2023. See you – stay safe!
