Subject: Richard Sauder message from Ecuador
From: Richard Sauder <firstname.lastname@example.org>
I am very happy to see you are still at it.
I am seeking political refuge in Ecuador, with support from 1) Francis
Boyle (international lawyer at U. of Illinois Law School), 2, the World
Service Authority in Washington, DC (founded by the late Gary Davis) and
3) the Inter-American Platform for Human Rights, Development and Democracy,
here in Quito.
The principal bases of my petition are 1) my multiple arrests and stints
in jail/prison for nonviolent, anti-nuclear peace protests, most recently
in 2010 in North Dakota, for which I spent 100 days in jail; 2) my years
of blogging on a variety of social and political issues; 3) my two decades
of research and writing about the many underground and underwater bases of
the military-industrial-espionage complex; and 4) the provisions of the NDAA
and the pervasive, global spying.
I am probably on multiple watch lists because of my anti-nuclear activism,
my blogging and my underground and underwater bases and tunnels research
and writing. With the NDAA anyone can be abruptly killed or simply plucked
off the street. You just vanish.
I have noticed human surveillance of myself in Quito in recent months. I
don't know who is doing it.
Here's my latest book:
in Plain Sight: Beyond the X-Files
Manifesto, issued on 15 April 2010, the day I went over the security
fence onto a Minuteman III nuclear missile silo, near Parshall, North Dakota.
I was almost killed a year and a half ago, and spent more than four months
in the public hospitals here in Ecuador. It was a close call. Some of my
friends think a USSA three-letter agency could have been involved.
Maybe. I personally have no idea. I am still alive.
By the way, when is Glenn Greenwald going to publish his "list" of NSA American
