The fundraiser has reached its target (but don't let that stop you). The organiser says "Thank you all. It's going to be epic."

Stuart Christie's Life and Legacy w/ The Stuart Christ Memorial Archive https://soundcloud.com/12rulesforwhat/34-stuart-christies-life-and-legacy

Jess Thorne joins us to discuss the life and passing of Stuart Christie, one of the UK's most famous anarchists who is perhaps best known for participating in a plot to assassinate Franco in 1964.

We also discuss the radical prisoner support group which Christie refounded, the memorial archive and the value of past struggles in informing our politics today.

Jess’s obituary of Christie: maydayrooms.org/stuart_christie/

I can't remember where Reddebrek was asking about if there's plans to save the Christie film archive, but that's covered in the interview at a bit past the 35-minute mark - short answer is that the plan is to have it hosted on the Mayday Rooms server.

Yup and I assume the website stuff is also covered, so that's good. It was an interesting interview I thought...

Thanks, that's good news, the interview was good too. I was worried about the archive going, I was slowly copying stuff to the internet archive and sticking a few I though might get past the copyright police on youtube, and someone else has been adding the films alphabetically onto Kolektiva.
