Artur Pawlowski was born in Poland, a country that has witnessed the devastating effects of authoritarian regimes. Growing up behind the Iron Curtain, he experienced firsthand the horrors of unchecked despotism. These early experiences shaped his worldview and instilled in him a lifelong commitment to stand against tyranny. "The horrors inflicted by unchecked despotism have burned their mark into my memory," Artur once stated, vowing to never let "freedom's voice be muffled" again.
Seeking a life where liberty and human rights were respected, Artur immigrated to Canada. He saw Canada as a beacon of freedom, a place where he could live out his convictions without fear of government reprisal. But what he found was a nation at a crossroads, grappling with the balance between public safety and individual freedoms.
For over 15 years, Pastor Artur has been an unwavering servant to Canada's most vulnerable populations. He has fed the hungry, comforted the distressed, and prayed with those who have been forgotten by society. His service extends beyond mere charity; it is a form of activism. "He does for free what the government demands billions of taxpayer dollars to accomplish," says a supporter. This selfless service has made him a threat not in a physical sense, but ideologically, challenging the government's role and effectiveness in social welfare.
Artur's commitment to serving the community has always been rooted in his deep-seated beliefs about freedom and human dignity. He believes that true freedom lies in serving others and that the pursuit of freedom often comes at a high cost. "The soldier stands unflinching, knowing that freedom bears a cost. There is a price to pay," he has said. His ideology is not just a theoretical construct but a lived experience, as evidenced by his willingness to face arrest and imprisonment for his beliefs.
Despite the protections afforded by Canadian law, specifically criminal code Section 176(1-3), Pastor Artur has faced numerous legal challenges. He has been arrested, harassed, and even subjected to over 34 days of solitary confinement, a clear violation of UN rules on prisoner conditions. These actions have not deterred him; rather, they have strengthened his resolve to fight for the unalienable rights of all Canadians.
In 2022, Pastor Artur found himself at the center of a legal storm when he was accused of inciting mischief and eco-terrorism for delivering a sermon to a group of protesting truckers. Despite video evidence to the contrary, he was found guilty, a verdict that has far-reaching implications for freedom of expression and religion in Canada.
Nathaniel Pawlowski, Artur's son, has taken up his father's cause, speaking before the European Parliament to highlight the erosion of human rights in Canada. "Canada has fallen; we no longer have freedom of religion, freedom of speech, or the right to protest," Nathaniel lamented, capturing the sense of urgency that many Canadians now feel.
Pastor Artur Pawlowski remains a polarizing figure, but what is undeniable is his unwavering commitment to the principles of freedom, justice, and human dignity. His life story is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit in the face of overwhelming odds. As he himself has said, drawing inspiration from Saint Augustine, "Hope has two beautiful daughters, anger and courage. Anger at the status quo and courage to change it."
We call upon all who value freedom, justice, and human rights to stand with Pastor Artur Pawlowski. His fight is not just his own; it is a fight for the very soul of a nation and the principles that define us as a free society.

Subject: An Urgent Global Appeal to Uphold Universal Values of Freedom of Expression and Religion - The Case of Artur Pawlowski
As citizens of the world committed to universal human rights and civil liberties, we write to you to express our grave concerns about a legal ruling that endangers these core principles, not just in Canada but globally. Pastor Artur Pawlowski, a resident of Calgary, Alberta, has been found guilty of inciting mischief and eco-terrorism. With his sentencing scheduled for September 18, 2023, the implications of this ruling could extend far beyond Canada’s borders, threatening the global commitment to freedom of expression and religion.
Artur Pawlowski fled Poland, a nation once constrained by the Iron Curtain, to find sanctuary in Canada—a country that symbolizes the triumph of liberty over tyranny. His recent guilty verdict for delivering a Christian sermon to truckers advocating for their rights marks a disconcerting departure from these ideals. If this ruling stands, it could set a chilling precedent where anyone—politicians, journalists, or ordinary citizens—could face severe penalties for dissenting opinions.
Artur's son, Nathaniel Pawlowski, brought the severity of this issue to international attention during his poignant speech before the European Parliament, warning, "Canada has fallen; we no longer have freedom of religion, freedom of speech, or the right to protest or assemble or associate or express ourselves or have free media or disagree with the government." This cautionary tale serves as a canary in the coal mine for people everywhere who cherish their fundamental rights.
As global citizens, we recognize that an attack on the freedom of one individual, anywhere in the world, is an attack on the freedom of all. Artur's case symbolizes a broader concern that impacts the international human rights framework. The world watches as Canada, a long-standing champion of human rights, teeters on the edge of compromising the very principles that define democratic societies worldwide.
We urge you, in the most unequivocal terms, to reevaluate this case and take immediate steps to rectify this breach of universal human rights. The upcoming sentencing on September 18, 2023, presents a critical moment not just for Artur Pawlowski, but for the global community committed to freedom and justice.
We call upon you to rise to the occasion and conduct a thorough investigation into this matter, reaffirming the indispensable values of freedom of expression and religion that form the basis of all free societies. The world is watching, and history will judge the actions—or inactions—that unfold in the coming weeks.
The Coalition to Defend Freedom
P.S. We believe that this issue is of such import that it transcends national boundaries, calling into question the universal principles upon which free societies are built. We earnestly urge you to act decisively in upholding these principles for the good of all humanity.
Dear Minister Amery,
I hope this letter finds you well. I am writing to bring to your attention the case of Pastor Artur Pawlowski, a Canadian citizen who has recently been found guilty of inciting mischief and eco-terrorism. This verdict has raised significant concerns about the erosion of fundamental rights guaranteed under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, specifically the freedoms of expression and religion.
As the Minister of Justice, you have a sworn duty to uphold and honor the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. The Charter is not merely a document; it is the embodiment of the values and principles that define our great nation. It serves as a safeguard against the abuse of power and ensures that every citizen is treated with dignity and respect.
The case against Pastor Artur Pawlowski has been fraught with legal inconsistencies and apparent human rights violations. Despite the protections afforded by Canadian criminal code Section 176(1-3), Pastor Artur has been subjected to harassment, arrest, and even solitary confinement for over 34 days—a clear violation of UN rules on prisoner conditions.
I urge you to review the charges and verdict against Pastor Artur Pawlowski and consider their implications on the freedoms of expression and religion in Canada. The guilty verdict not only imperils Pastor Artur's personal liberties but also sets a dangerous precedent that threatens the very principles upon which our society is built.
I kindly request that you use your authority to reverse the charges and verdict against Pastor Artur Pawlowski. By doing so, you will be upholding the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and ensuring that justice is served.
Thank you for your attention to this urgent matter. I look forward to your prompt response.
