I say share it. The thing that matters is the ideas and the material. The guy being an asshole is just an extra reason to say publish and be damned, but even if he wasn’t it’s still the case that this is good material that belongs to the world, not to him, and if there’s a way to facilitate the world’s access to it then it should be done. Amiright?

Well thanks, but to be clear I am already sharing it, just not on the one platform I know this guy is still using. Both platforms I am sharing it on have download functions, so anyone else is free to take it and share on youtube or anywhere else if they like. I just don't want to risk my channel which has hundreds of hours of other important stuff on it.

Ok, I get it. This is the problem with using stinking capitalist platforms for the spreading of ideas. That’s not a criticism btw, just an observation. I just hate the tendency of this reality to
force us to compromise principles, in this case the free access of information. LBC wanted to use a BBC clip in one of her vids and my position was to just get on and use it. She chose to seek permission(ugh, the very idea!!!) and of course was refused. I guess it’s a matter of risk aversion.

Yikes. That does not sound fun and I don't blame you for wanting to avoid them.

Antimidia a Brazilian Anarchist group has been making some excellent videos, and now they've managed to collaborate with others to translate their videos into other languages, here's their criticism of democracy in English https://kolektiva.media/videos/watch/cb278ec9-f308-4617-9cec-38a31626f43...

Oh and here's a short video I made of a cat rocking out to Mother Anarchy

Haven't been watching many political videos recently, but I have set up a channel for the many public domain films I have on my hard drive. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6sVYsy7eDcli7M7nZos4qA/videos

More relevant to this thread I've gathered a number of rare clips of anarchists from the 1910s-30s and have been adding them to the channel.

Including a recording of the IWA conference in Madrid in 1931 which has footage of Rudolf Rocker and Augustin Souchy https://youtu.be/vXttBQ3goIo

It's a treasure trove! Thanks for gathering these into one place.

Just shared it on twitter and tagged some anarchist channels that might want to use these resources.

Thanks, glad people are finding it interesting, unfortunately despite mostly being public domain there's still a lot of proprietary nonsense to bat against and a ton of important film footage that only exists in vaults or as part of montages of newer documentaries. The Emma Goldman clip is a portion from an 1980s documentary that had permission to show that minute and nothing else.

And the Kropotkin fragment from 1917 remains a mystery.

Got a few replies to the tweet, thought I'd share them so you can see the appreciation

A fellow on twitter is building a database of anarchist documentaries and lectures that are available on youtube and other video streaming platforms.

https://twitter.com/theo_slade/status/1447501494723518464?s=20

worth checking out, still a work in progress.

I'm a bit confused by that database. The first film I clicked on was a documentary about Jordan Peterson by a television news reporter. Second, a film made by a member of parliament. It also lists films by John Pilger and Adam Curtis. Maybe "rare anarchist media archive" is not the right name.

That is pretty strange, but I didn't see anything like that when I came across it, and looking back at it I don't see anything like that now either, it appears the list is porting material from other sources and then going through them. Probably just grabbed all the information in bulk and then whittled down the entries that aren't applicable.
