MANCHESTER - Edward Snowden will appear via video link as a featured speaker at a New Hampshire convention of libertarian activists.

The Valley News reports  that the former National Security Agency contractor will participate in a 30-minute discussion and Q&A at the New Hampshire Free State Project's convention in Manchester in February.

The Free State Project describes itself as an effort to recruit "liberty-loving people" to move to New Hampshire. The group says it is trying to recruit 20,000 people who agree that a government should act to protect people's rights.

Snowden leaked millions of documents about government surveillance in 2013. He has been living in Russia under a grant of asylum.

He faces charges in the U.S. for leaking details of the once-secret program.
