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!

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.
