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.

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.

Suzie is a courageous human being, appreciated & respected internationally. For a journalist of integrity & truth please stop these attacks on a peaceful family. Shame on NZ's lack of insight, lack of will & lack of respect for journalistic freedom.

The biggest failure of UN, and multilateralism in general, is that the power of the US-led western intel apparatus has grown unopposed and remains unchallenged. This has to change to protect people like Suzie Dawson, who belongs to an extremely rare group: the good journalists.

It seems that any journalist worth their salt today is harassed, intimidated, smeared and persecuted by the state, especially increasingly here in the West, by those powers that have been exposed as Evil doers through inhumane actions for gains financial, resources and power in general.

We must protect our Independent and Corporate journo's and publishers that go about fearlessly speaking truths to power, putting everything on the line, informing 'we the people', our right to know. Free Suzie Dawson.

Interesting that this open letter has 97 retweets but only 13 signatures.

One response on Twitter cites being warned about spam - as has just happened to me. I wonder how many others were warned off signing. For others considering signing, and wondering how far down the rabbit hole this all goes for Suzy, her story has been verified by leading privacy and spy state experts, including CIA whistleblower John Kiriakou, see notarised letter

Shockingly little written about this in her home country New Zealand. As an independent journalist, I can only shake my head in disgust.

Suzie Dawson is a very giving and selfless person. She’s been absolutely integral to the successes of the Unity4J movement to save Julian Assange. We’re it not for the corrpt societies now encompassing the Western world, Suzie would be a celebrated journalist and activist enjoying freedom of movement in her home country of New Zealand. Please give al
