WFRtDS raises its voice in support for New Zealand RtD Advocate Suzy Austen

Suzy Austen, a right-to-die campaigner from New Zealand, is facing the possibility of 14 years of imprisonment. 

Suzy denied all three charges against her. Pretrial will be in July 2017.

The costs for the hire of lawyers to defend her against the charges are high. Therefore, a crowdfund campaign is set up. Please donate to help support her legal defence!

Suzy Austen wants it to be known "... how much I appreciate all the support from all around the world, and how grateful and humble I feel."
