Pastor Pawlawski is a shining example of civil disobedience. He refused to stop preaching during lockdowns and was arrested a number of times for continuing to preach to his parishioners in person.
Pastor Art (Pawlawski) would know all about tyranny and liberty. He was born and lived in Poland until he immigrated to Canada. He lived through Communism and the Solidarity movement that freed Poland from Communism. He is passionate about liberty. As such we support him.
Last week he was arrested for the speech / sermon he gave on February 4, 2022 in Coutts, Canada. The Canadian government is holding Pastor Pawlawski personally responsible for the entire blockade at the Coutts border crossing when in fact, the blockade was there before he showed up! The Canadian government is persecuting him because he recognizes that government for what it is, a tyrannical government. And they are proving it with how they are treating him. They are going far beyond normal incarceration. It is cruel and unusual punishment. What he is enduring a form of torture. They are apparently trying to dissuade him from speaking out. They are only succeeding in showing themselves for what they are : tyrants. Only tyrants behave in this manner.

The conditions under which he is being held are inhumane and include deprivation of water for days on end, unsanitary conditions, and much more. Please watch the video below where Pastor Pawlawski’s brother and son call to action to free Pastor Pawlawski. See video below.

Please take action. If you live in anywhere other than Canada and a Canadian Consulate or Embassy is a reasonable distance away, please consider organizing a Protest. Find the Canadian Embassy and the Consulates here (https://www.canadian-consulate.com/canadian-embassy-in-washington.html – for other cities or countries just enter your city or country’s name in the search box on the right of the site). There are 4 Canadian Consulates in the USA: Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis, New York, San Francisco and Seattle. Please also sign the petition!
If there is no embassy or consulate near you, please consider calling the nearest embassy and calling for political prisoner Pastor’s Pawlawski’s immediate release. You could also email or write a letter to mail via the postal service. Or all three. And then, please forward this post to everyone you know asking them to do likewise. Remember to be polite – you catch more bees with honey than with vinegar!
