(ANTIMEDIA) Munich, Germany — The National Security Agency’s insidious global surveillance program eradicated the very concept of privacy around the globe.

That’s why notable whistleblowers William Binney, Ray McGovern, Glenn Greenwald, and others traveled to Berlin to film this exclusive series of video interviews hosted by Zain Raza, Founder and Senior Editor of acTVism Munich.

acTVism Munich is an independent, non-profit media network that conducts regular broadcasts for a global audience from its home base in Munich, Germany.

With its goal of divulging those issues otherwise buried by an excess of corporate media propaganda, acTVism’s investigative journalism and high-quality videos feature pertinent information that you’re not being told.

Zain Raza’s new media network actively rejects advertisements and corporate financing of any stripe, instead choosing to fund their new grassroots media revolution solely through the donations of people like you.

Here at the Anti-Media we are honored to showcase acTVism Munich’s exciting work for our audience by turning these exclusive National Security Agency interviews into video articles published on our website for the duration of the release schedule.

The following interview is the first in an exclusive video series — released moments ago by acTVism Munich — and the Anti-Media is ready to make it viral.

Code Red: A Global Initiative

In 2014 a group of the world’s most renowned privacy activists, whistleblowers, technologists and legal experts united to work on the development of a global initiative to fight surveillance.

Led by privacy veteran Simon Davies and former MI5 intelligence officer Annie Machon, the project has developed into the Code Red initiative.

Its aim is to create the next evolutionary step in the growing movement to curb excessive government power.

The project will build bridges between the technology, media, legal and policy worlds and will become a strategic hub for the many activists working in this arena.

Code Red will also create a clearing house for information in the anti-surveillance movement and will support whistleblowers and sources.

The following whistleblowers provide their views on the issue of privacy in the video above:

William Binney: Former highly placed intelligence official with the National Security Agency (NSA) turned whistleblower who resigned on October 31, 2001, after more than 30 years with the agency.

Thomas Andrews Drake: Former senior executive of the U.S. National Security Agency (NSA), a decorated United States Air Force and United States Navy veteran, and a whistleblower.

Annie Machon: Former MI5 intelligence officer who left the Service at the same time as David Shayler, her partner at the time, to help him blow the whistle about alleged criminality within the intelligence agencies.

Simon Davies: A privacy advocate and academic based in London. Davies was one of the first campaigners in the field of international privacy advocacy, founding the watchdog organization Privacy International in 1990 and subsequently working in emerging areas of privacy such as electronic visual surveillance, identity systems, border security, encryption policy and biometrics.

Elizabeth Murray: Served as Deputy National Intelligence Officer for the Near East in the National Intelligence Council before retiring after a 27-year career in the U.S. government. She is a member of Veteran Intelligence Professionals for Sanity (VIPS).

Caroline Hunt: A United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) whistleblower.

Since you’re here…

…We have a small favor to ask. Fewer and fewer people are seeing Anti-Media articles as social media sites crack down on us, and advertising revenues across the board are quickly declining. However, unlike many news organizations, we haven’t put up a paywall because we value open and accessible journalism over profit — but at this point, we’re barely even breaking even. Hopefully, you can see why we need to ask for your help. Anti-Media’s independent journalism and analysis takes substantial time, resources, and effort to produce, but we do it because we believe in our message and hope you do, too.

If everyone who reads our reporting and finds value in it helps fund it, our future can be much more secure. For as little as $1 and a minute of your time, you can support Anti-Media. Thank you. Click here to support us
