Open Letter

We are asking all good people of conscience to co-sign their name to the below Open Letter. The letter calls on relevant international bodies and non-governmental agencies to take immediate action to endorse and preserve the human rights and liberty of Suzie and her children, and to protect them from being thrust back into the waiting arms of her persecutors. Once you have read and signed the letter, please share it with friends, colleagues and family to help us protect this brave Kiwi journalist. Thank you

We, the undersigned, have reviewed the overwhelming evidence of New Zealand journalist Suzie Dawson’s political persecution as posted on this website and call on international bodies and NGO's to step up and advocate for the protection of Suzie and her family from this persecution.

It is unacceptable that a young mother and her children have been subjected to extreme psychological distress after years of targeting and harassment by the very entities Suzie held to account through her journalistic work and activism. Suzie and her children deserve, at the very least, to live free of this persistent abuse.

Due to a combination of discrimination based on Suzie's country of origin and her association with other high value targets, neglect and lack of resource, Suzie and her family are effectively in limbo and require urgent intervention from appropriate parties in order to resolve their situation in a way that reinforces and is consistent with their human rights.

Suzie Dawson is not and has never been a threat to the public but rather a peaceful, pro-democratic activist whose journalistic work has been published on three continents, in multiple languages, and is of a great benefit to the public. We therefore exhort you to provide Suzie Dawson and her young family the support and advocacy necessary to ensure that they are protected from the powerful entities that have demonstrated repeatedly that they will stop at nothing to harm her.

It is a crying shame that in 2021 I am having to request that governments and human rights bodies protect this amazing journalist and peaceful pro democracy activist, as well as her children. I have been following her for years and everything she does is in the public interest. Please be on the right side of history and support this family and their basic rights. Thank you

Our 1st Amendment Rights all over the world are being stripped away layer by layer - year by year!

In the U.S. we can no longer count or depend on any political party to come to save our freedoms, liberties and rights. fully supports Susie Dawson, Elizabeth Voss & crew in freeing/pardoning Julian Assange, Edward Snowden & others from the ever growing oppression, subjugation and fascism of the Corporate Elite 1% & their puppets in Washington D.C./Congress!

Please do all you can to support Susie & Co., whenever possible.

Independent journalism is all we have too get real news of what’s happening in the world, since MSM are generally corporate owned.

The price for exposing governmental crimes and abuse should never involve having to flee your home to get away from said government. Suzie has always done righteous work, from #Occupy on ward to present day.

Without a fourth estate the rule of law that enables a republic and it’s foundational ideals of democracy become the ephemeral arbitrary wisps of tyrannical despotic unaccountable power...
