This Friday, June 21, 2013 is NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden’s 30th birthday and there’s a worldwide solidarity party going down at a time and public place of your choosing. Here are a few ideas to help you celebrate.
How about these eye-catching cupcakes?
Get a small magnetic board and some alphabet fridge magnets, then get people to spell out their birthday wishes. Snap a picture and upload to your favourite information-sharing portal.
Turn some heads and stay safe from state surveillance by concealing your identity under a costume.
Spice up your favourite mixed drink with a home-made cocktail umbrella. Just download the templates and print. Cut out the circles, tape to make a cone and stick on the end of a toothpick or skewer.
Make some noise
It’s not a party without some tunes so bring some amplified music or instruments to make your own.
