Justice and Freedom for Romy Bauwens

Romy Bauwens is a Belgian psychologist and researcher previously active in the neuroscientific field.

This petition was started for following issue.

American Surveillance is a widely acknowledged issue that has been subjected to democratic scrutiny in the past decade. After the revelations on the U.S. National Security Agency’s transnational mass surveillance in 2013, it has been the object of extensive judicial research both in the United States and in Europe. In Europe, numerous legislative initiatives were proposed in an attempt to safeguard civilian fundamental rights and liberties. However, to date, they remain insufficient.

On the 2nd of November 2016, Romy Bauwens came in contact with an U.S. Federal scientific institution for a work-related issue. One week following this contact, she was exposed to constant surveillance and harassment, this for unidentified reasons. Her physical integrity was threatened. This issue is persisting in the present and she is now threatened with death. After investigation, Romy Bauwens was informed to be subjected to an U.S. Intelligence gathering program with intellectual property claims. Whistleblowing activities were blocked and obstruction of justice followed. A part of her entourage was threatened as well. So far, no appropriate solution has been found.

We wish for Romy Bauwens to be free from this situation, free from threat and able to return to her academic activities.
