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.

I find no reason to disbelieve or doubt Suzie Dawson, and urge all bodies and those able to influence her outcomes. To help in any way possible. In these times a journalist such as Suzi needs regard and now, protection.

Thank-you.

I do not feel that Suzie Dawson presents any threat to me, my country, or humanity. I have grave concerns, however, about any individual or institution that feels it is their right to go after those who speak out for justice and truth. Have we no working institutions that are willing to stand up for humans against powerful interests?

Journalism is not a crime . Let the truth be told and set her free.
Name: Jessica Tiffany
Date: 26 Dec 19 01:26 UTC
Suzie & her family are being persecuted because she did the unforgivable, she reported the truth, the truth which went against to gov't narratives of lies designed to keep citizens ignorant.

She should be receiving awards, not threats. She& her family should be living normal, happy, safe lives, not a life full of fear, suspicion, constant stress & worry.

As children we are told to tell the truth, & that telling lies is wrong & to do so will mean punishment. But as adults it seems those that lie reap the biggest rewards, even when caught, & those that tell the truth are the only ones who face consequences.

I stand with Suzie.

Using tax payers own money to illegally target and harrass citizens is so wrong on so many levels in any democratic society.

When Governments copy the actions of criminals and mafia-style organisations, they become them and we won't follow criminals

Stop the targeting of Journalists who reveal fact and truth

When Government starts doing the right things, there'll be nothing for journalists to reveal
