Abby Martin and Jill Stein – acTVism Munich Press Conference
On the 6th of May 2018, we organized an event at the Muffatwerk in Munich with Glenn Greenwald, Abby Martin and Jill Stein under the title „Freedom & Democracy: Global Issues in Context 2.0″. Below you will find the video of the press conference that we held right after the event. Due to limited capacities as a non-profit, volunteer-based and independent organization, we were unable to publish this video right away.
In this press conference we invited not only journalists from local and mainstream media outlets but also grassroots activists, artists, organizers and non-profit initiatives. Even though we sent invitations to local & mainstream media outlets to participate in this press conference, and some of them even confirmed, in the end they did not attend.
We would also like to take this opportunity to announce the start of our crowdfunding campaign aiming to reach 1000 donors who can support our vision with as little as €5 or $5 a month through our Patreon page or Crowdfunding platform at betterplace.org. Click here to find out how you can support our vision on a regular basis via different payment methods.
Thank you for your love & support. Your generosity will contribute greatly in informing and inspiring people worldwide!

Jill Stein was the U.S. Green Party’s presidential candidate in 2016 and 2012. She is an organizer, physician and environmental health advocate. In the 2016 election, she was the only national Presidential candidate to call for an emergency jobs program to jointly solve the climate and economic crises, and for demilitarization through a foreign policy based on international law, diplomacy and human rights. She was also the only candidate to be arrested for supporting the Dakota Sioux nation in resisting the DAPL pipeline. Following the 2016 election, she launched a recount initiative – which is ongoing – to investigate potential interference in the presidential election.
