Imams have not been arrested for holding Muslim services in mosques. Rabbis have not been arrested for holding Jewish services in synagogues. But Christian pastor Artur Pawlowski has been arrested several times for holding church services, in which all members congregate of their free will and affect no outsiders.

The pastor was arrested for his opposition to the Canadian government's covid policies, or for being a Christian, or both. His right to practice free speech and practice religion are both violated.

4 February 2022. "Hold the line, stand your ground." Pastor Artur Pawlowski encourages protestors to fight unlawful mandates, lockdowns, and vaccine passports. 

I just spoke with Nathaniel Pawlowski, Pastor Artur’s son. He told me armed police just raided their home and arrested Pastor Artur.

BREAKING: Pastor Artur Pawlowski was arrested AGAIN at his home by
undercover police.

8 February 2022. Scoped out by undercover officers, Pastor Artur Pawlowski was then arrested and dragged from his home by uniformed officers.

They’re harassing him. Arresting him almost every week.

These arrests are a malicious, political abuse of power. But the timing, in this case, was especially outrageous—Pastor Artur was scheduled to drive down to the peaceful trucker protests at the Alberta-Montana border, to give a speech.
But in Canada, free speech and freedom of religion are under attack.

I spoke with Pastor Artur’s lawyer, Sarah Miller. She told me she has already dispatched her colleague, Chad Haggerty—a former RCMP officer, now an excellent criminal lawyer—to help.

Our goal is simple: get Pastor Artur out of jail as fast as possible.

This really is the kind of story you’d expect to hear from China or Cuba. The fact that it’s happening in Canada is deeply concerning. And seriously: the police obsession with this peaceful pastor is bringing the administration of justice itself into disrepute.

If you can, please click here or go to to help cover the legal fees for Chad Haggerty’s emergency court appearance. We’ve got to get Pastor Artur out of jail.

P.S. I’m old enough to remember “refuseniks” in the Soviet Union in the 1970s and 80s. They were peaceful dissidents that the authorities kept arresting and arresting and arresting. They were political prisoners—but the west knew about them and cared, and made an international campaign to free them.

Clifford, Pastor Artur is our generation’s “refusenik”. Please help me help our lawyers get him out of jail, at Thanks.

“I am a very privileged man, that I can go through this hard time feeling the presence of my God right here with me. I can’t imagine experiencing life’s difficulties without the loving care of Jesus Christ, it must be terrifying. Please pray for all of those that are hurting but do not know Him yet. Pray they would embrace His love, His mercy and His grace. After two weeks of fasting, my wife is now taking over the fast. I am standing strong and want to thank everyone who is standing with me. May God bless you.” —Pastor Artur Pawlowski. 23 February 2022
