At the end of the Second World War a new era of globalization of capital and production began that continues on today and is enforced through manifold free trade agreements. Another turning point was 9/11. Since then, an increased military presence and an expanding security apparatus is leading to more surveillance and violence in the name of national security.
Our limited capacities and resources also mean that we’ll encounter financial straits and staff shortage. Due to our upcoming event with Edward Snowden we will halt all content production until 14.01.2017, which includes videos, written interviews and news reports, including their translations and voice overs in multiple languages. We will continue to ocassionally share the work of activists, indepdendent media, Whistleblowers and investigative journalists.
