Online TV Program May 2016: Noam Chomsky, Heiner Flassbeck & Yanis Varoufakis
For May 2016, acTVism Munch will start off by releasing an interview with MIT professor, anarchist, philosopher and renowned linguist, Noam Chomsky, who will talk about US military presence in Europe and the case of Edward Snowden.
Why are circa 44,660 US troops and 170 military installations stationed in Germany? What historical decisions are tied to US military presence in Europe & Germany ? Why doesn’t Germany grant Edward Snowden the right to asylum?
These questions will be addressed by Prof. Noam Chomsky on the 9th of May 2016.
On the 18th of May, we will release part one of our interview with Heiner Flassbeck which was recorded during our event “Germany’s role in the European Union & International Affairs”. In this video, Prof. Flassbeck will surface Germany’s role in the ongoing economic and financial crisis that is engulfing the European Union.
Our last video of the month will include part two of our interview with the former finance minister of Greece and founder of the Democracy in Europe Movement 25, Yanis Varoufakis. In this video Yanis Varoufakis will talk about a host of issues that include: Privatization, Human rights, media, EU-negotiations and capitalism’s ability/inability to reform.
Are privatizations benefiting the Greek people? Is the “Memorandum of Understanding” signed by the Greek government with the Troika compatible with the “Declaration of Human Rights”? Is capitalism reformable?
This questions and many more will be discussed on the 25th of May 2016.
acTVism Munich has attained permission from the University of Arizona to translate an event into multiple languages that hosted Edward Snowden, Glenn Greenwald and Noam Chomsky, who talked about the issue of privacy. This event took place on the 25th of March, 2016, and was organized by the University of Arizona College of Social and Behavioral Sciences.
Secondly, acTVism Munich mobilized volunteers in New York to record an event that was organized by the New York Public Library (NYPL) which hosted Yanis Varoufakis and Noam Chomsky. This event took place on the 26th of April, 2016, and focused the discussion, amongst other issues, on the state of democracy in Europe as well as the economic and social problems confronting it.
Lastly, acTVism Munich plans to cover the demonstration that will take place on the 11th of June, 2016, against the US-military base in Ramstein, which is known for conduction drone operations worldwide. We are planning on creating a public awareness video in which experts, that have worked extensively against U.S foreign bases such as John Lindsay, Bruce Gagnon, Wilbert van der Zeijden, Joseph Gerson and Noam Chomsky, will talk about the how such bases impact the environment, economy and safety of the communities surrounding them.
Unfortunately, acTVism Munich has very limited financial resources and requires your immediate support to materialize these projects. From transportation, lodging, food, production, translation, and other costs, given our capacities, it will be a very difficult task for us to execute as a non-profit and volunteer-based organization.
