The Blunders of Fox News & Donald Trump on the Facts about Brexit
The 24th of June 2016 will be remembered as a significant day for the United Kingdom and the European Union. The importance of this day, it seems, was not taken seriously by everyone.
For example Fox News, the US news channel owned by multimillionaire Rupert Murdoch, mistakenly got the facts wrong in its news bar in which it stated that UK decided to leave the UN instead of the EU.

Even republican presidential candidate, Donald Trump, got his facts wrong about the Scottish referendum on the EU.
Scotland voted 62 per cent to 38 per cent in favour of remaining in the EU with a 67.2%, turnout rate – the second highest turnout of any referendum held in Scotland, higher even than the 1997 referendum on devolution.

acTVism Munich plans to continue translating the event organized by the University of Arizona, “A Conversation to Privacy” that hosted Edward Snowden, Glenn Greenwald and Noam Chomsky. acTVism Munich believes that privacy is a central ingredient to democracy and creating awareness on it on a global scale is of utmost important for the future of human freedom and liberty. Secondly, we plan to begin translating an event that was organized by the New York Public Library (NYPL) that hosted Yanis Varoufakis and Noam Chomsky. This event took place on the 26th of April, 2016, and focused, amongst other issues, on the state of European democracy; the underlying problems confronting it and the solutions moving forward.
We lack technical and financial resources to translate both of the above mentioned events.
Lastly, acTVism Munich received Edward Snowden’s confirmation about participating in a future event known as “Freedom & Democracy: Global Issues – Connecting the Dots”. In this event we plan to bring leading experts together to discuss the connections between various issues and reveal the system at work. We believe that we can only arrive at viable solutions by increasing public awareness of the principal and structural faults of our system.
We lack the necessary financial and technical resources to execute the projects, trips and events mentioned above. Since we are a non-profit and independent media outlet that has a strict policy against accepting advertisements, government or corporate support – we depend only on you, the public.
