WikiLeaks: Brazil’s Interim President served as US-Informant
The investigative website WikiLeaks revealed documents about Brazil’s interim president, Michel Temer, which show that he served as an informant for the US intelligence and military apparatus. Two documents dated January and February 2006 that were classified “Sensitive”, show that Temer expressed his views about the state of his party and the elections in 2006 to the US Southern Command in Miami and the US National Security Council.
WikiLeaks stated via twitter that “Brasil’s new president #Temer was an embassy informant for US intelligence, military.“

On Thursday the upper house of the Brazilian parliament voted 55-22 to begin the impeachment process of Rousseff. Rousseff is accused of concealing the budget deficit of Brazil prior to the 2014 elections. She has been suspended for 180 days and Temer appointed as interim president.

Why donate to acTVism Munich?
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. These projects depend only on you – please support us today by donating via PayPal or Bank transfer by clicking here!
