Німецький відеопроект хоче взяти у вас інтерв’ю

Медіапроект із Німеччини шукає українських активістів для створення відео, мета якого – показати різноманітне середовище українських активістів, щоби порушити образ українця як “крайньо-правого екстреміста”, що склався в німецьких медіа. Проект проходитиме в Києві орієнтовно між 20 і 30 вересня 2014 року.

Дорогі друзі,

У мене з німецьким блогером народилася ідея серії коротких відео-інтерв’ю з українськими активістами. Особливість проекту в тому, що аудиторія – німецькі ліві, які завдяки російській пропаганді пов’язують Україну швидше за все з правими, право-радикалами, мілітаристами і олігархами. Щоб протидіяти цьому кліше, ми хочемо зустрітися з представниками різних суб-культур і соціальних рухів, тобто, наприклад, з панками, анархістами, феміністами, правозахисниками, меншостями, еко-активістами, художниками, але також і з представниками молодих партії як ДемАльянс. Мета – підвищення емпатії і солідарності, і в кінцевому підсумку розвивати уявлення про різноманіття України.

Нам дуже потрібна ще ваша допомога:

  • Якщо ви хочете взяти участь, напишіть на контактну адресу. Також, ми шукаємо гарного перекладача, який може перекладати між англійською/німецькою та російькою/українською. Гарного тому, що і тонкощі можуть грати великий роль.
  • Якщо у вас зв’язки з людьми які підходить до мети проекту, дайте нам знати!

Велике дякую!

February 20 – Ukraine's example shows well that the position of halting nuclear power and refusing nuclear potential is not justified. This was stated by the former General Director of NATO, George Robertsonin an article published in the newspaper Herald Scotland. In polemics with the Scottish National Party, which supports the nuclear disarmament of Britain, he advises the opponents to search in Google information on the Budapest Memorandum of 1994, wherein Ukraine under "assurances made under oath" by Russia, USA, and Britain, renounced nuclear arms. "These countries, as well as both France and China, promised to: a) respect Ukrainian independence and sovereignity within the existing borders; b) refrain from the threat or the use of force against Ukraine, and c) refrain from economic pressure on Ukraine as a means of influencing its politics. "Don't these promises look good in the light of the bloody battles, which we see on our TV screens every evening?" asks Rebertson. Simultaneously, he emphasizes, that Russia is not even thinking of stopping its nuclear potential, but, on the contrary, is cultivating it.
