Hi Steven. This is amazing. We need far more online. Freedom mentions so much that is lost to the mists of time.

I'd help but I'm in Scotland.

I'll drop you a private message. First I need to talk to some folks at Freedom so when I've done that I'll be in touch

We have a giant stash of them going back decades at Freedom, the entire 80s/90s got professionally bound etc, but unfortunately they got damaged in the fire in 2013 so many are quite delicate. My personal archive is near-enough complete from 2003-8 and intermittent after, which I'd be happy to get scanned but iirc the libcom scanner might mean damaging them?

hi, yeah for us to scan them we need to chop them up. So only good for ones you have duplicates of. Could anyone at Freedom identify any duplicates that we could have and get up quite easily?

In terms of more recent ones, I asked J a while ago if she could send over the PDFs that we could just put straight online. Unfortunately when she replied I missed it and have since replied but not sure if my message got through. So if you have a contact with her which is not through Facebook (which is how I messaged her) if you could let her know I responded through FB messenger that would be great
