SERENA SHIM: THE LIFE AND UNEXPLAINED DEATH OF A SYRIA WAR REPORTER

 

She had recently reported for the Iranian-backed Press TV about Turkey’s role in smuggling IS fighters into Syria on World Food Programme trucks. In her final live broadcast, she described how agents from the Turkish National Intelligence Organization (MIT) had been asking questions about her movements while she was covering the siege of Kobani by IS militants.

The PEN America mission statement:

“With mounting threats to a free press and other cornerstones of our democracy, breakdowns in civil discourse, and the marginalization of important voices, PEN America has a vital role to play in defending free expression…”

DO NOT DONATE TO THIS MALIGNANT FRAUD OF AN ORGANIZATION.

As US seeks to crush media freedom, we all need to read Assange’s letter from prison

The US government, or rather, those regrettable elements in it that hate truth,  liberty and justice, want to cheat their way into my extradition and death, rather than letting the public hear the truth, for which I have won the highest awards in journalism and have been nominated 7 times for the Nobel Peace Prize. Truth, ultimately, is all we have.
