Suzie Dawson, asylum-seeking journalist and current President of the Internet Party of New Zealand, is critically ill in Moscow. Dawson is seeking asylum in Russia after being targeted by New Zealand intelligence agencies as a result of her activism in the Occupy movement and against the TPP, among other causes.
Disobedient Media previously reported on the Senate’s passage of legislation that reauthorized a section of controversial FISA law. Since publishing that article, President Trump tweeted that he had signed off on the legislation, despite widespread calls to veto the bill. On the same day, Suzie Dawson and this author discussed an important Snowden file that sheds light on NSA resistance to Congressional oversight and raises concern regarding issues like FISA.
