The_Guardian_front_page_10_June_2013Edward Snowden’s second day out of Hong Kong dawns and there’s no certainty what it will bring. A safe flight out of Moscow to Cuba? And on to Ecuador? Or problems enroute?

Hard to say. But as Jonathan Watts said in a blog post for The Guardian, Ecuador may be a rough patch for someone committed to intellectual and personal freedoms in the way of Snowden.

Watts points out that “the environment for “private media” is a major issue in Ecuador these days.”

It’s hardly a great bastion of liberty.

How will Snowden cope?
