A Tax on Robots? | Yanis Varoufakis on acTVism Munich

Yanis Varoufakis - Robotersteuer
Ken makes a decent living operating a large harvester on behalf of farmer Luke. Ken’s salary generates income tax and social security payments that help finance government programs for less fortunate members of his community. Alas, Luke is about to replace Ken with Nexus, a robot that can operate the harvester longer, more safely, in any weather, and without lunch breaks, holidays, or sick pay.

The full Translation: Snowden, Chomsky & Greenwald – A Conversation on Privacy

Snowden
In March 2016, acTVism Munich contacted the University of Arizona College of Social and Behavioural Sciences for permission to translate an event called “A Conversation on Privacy” which hosted Edward Snowden, Glenn Greenwald and Noam Chomsky into the German language with the goal to create awareness on the issues discussed on a global scale. We not only received permission to translate and republish this event, but we are now happy to announce that we successfully accomplished this goal. The entire event is now available in German and will also be digital archived by us. Although we have the personnel to translate the content into Spanish, French and Greek as well, we lack the financial resources that would free up the necessary time required to undertake this critical initiative. If you think it is important to translate such discussions into multiple language in order to create awareness on them beyond the United States, then click here to donate to our current Crowdfunding campaign. Your donation will assist us in pursueing similar initiatives in the future!

acTVism Munich is temporarily halting all original content production

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.
