Snowden offers Christmas message to Britain

(NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Former National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden offered a Christmas message to the British public.

He pressed for an end to mass government surveillance.

"We have sensors in our pockets that track us everywhere we go. Think about what this means for the privacy of the average person," said Snowden.

He called the U.K. and U.S. government worse than anything George Orwell described in his novel "1984."

Right now Snowden faces charges of espionage and felony theft of government property in the U.S.
