Serena Shim was many things. Daughter. Sister. Mother. Fiercely loyal friend to many. Determined and well respected journalist. Intrepid researcher. Studious documenter of evidence. American citizen. Truth seeker.
There are those who sought to describe her quite differently, however. Troublemaker. Irritant. Agent of misinformation. Threat. Spy. Target.
On October 19, 2014, Serena was killed under very vague circumstances while working in Turkey. The last sighting of her alive in public was in custody of the Turkish military. The same forces that were looking for her under the pretense of "questioning" regarding her allegations of covert support of ISIL forces by Turkey. The entirety of Serena's material regarding this story has disappeared, apparently forever. Corporate mainstream media, the US Department of State, the Erdogan government of Turkey and NATO have done and continue to do as little as possible to seek any answers or credible information regarding Serena's death.
That's not good enough for many. Operation Serena Shim has and will continue to bring this crime to the public consciousness. It will not end until Justice for Serena is achieved. Another campaign is coming soon and we request your attention and participation. @TimBestbudz, @7h4n47oZ and @steveshagwell will join us with the latest developments and plans to #SpeakSassysTruth
