Susanne Wiest (born 16 January 1967) is an activist for the unconditional basic income who lives in Greifswald , Germany. 
A childcare worker, Susanne Wiest is known in Germany for having launched a petition to the German Parliament  asking for the implementation of a basic income of 1,000 Euros a month. The petition went so viral that it did not receive more than 52,000 signatures of support, but the hosting services were overloaded in the last days of the collection,  forcing the Bundestag to extend the duration of the petition for one week. 
The petition then was accepted and Susanne Wiest was invited for a hearing at the Bundestag’s Commission of Petitions. The hearing took place on 8 November 2010  following which has been featured in the German media. In June 2013, the petition was finally closed by the Parliament,  thus depriving the supporters of the basic income of any parliamentary debate on the issue.
Susanne Wiest ran in the legislative elections in 2009 as a free candidate. She received 1.2% of the votes cast. Since December 2012, she has been a member of the Pirate Party of Germany. Since 2017 Susanne Wiest is chairman of the German party Bündnis Grundeinkommen (Basic Income League)  , which founded in September 2016 and was awarded to the German Federal Election 2017 and reached 0.2% of the votes.
