We must fight for freedom, he said at Albertov on November 17, 1989
Martin Klíma was born on June 7, 1969 in Bristol, Great Britain, where his parents lived between 1968-71. During his high school studies in Prague, he became interested in science fiction. In 1987 he joined the Faculty of Mathematics and Physics of the Charles University and became the publisher of the fanzine Villoidus viridis, the student magazine of the local sci-fi club. In addition, he organized a successful petition against the intended demolition of the faculty buildings in Karlov. According to him, the success of the petition directly inspired the establishment of the independent student movement Stuha, which together with the Socialist Youth Union organized the protest march on November 17, 1989. In Albertov, where the event began, Martin Klíma gave a speech to the independent students. In the following days, he became one of the spokesmen of the coordination strike committee, which managed the occupation strike of universities from the Disk Theater. After the revolution, he founded the Altar publishing house, in which he published his own version of the „role-playing game“, Dragon‘s Lair. He later switched to creating and publishing computer games, to which he is still devoted to till today.
