GIVEN the decision by Labour-controlled Blaenau Gwent Council to ignore the wishes of the Save Our Cinema protesters, I can only agree with Cllr Hopkin’s comment that the councillors have been “dogmatic” and “dictatorial”.
I daresay we can certainly also add undemocratic! Regarding direct democracy, Rob Hatherall (letters March 7) asks whether my “power from-the-base-not-top theorem is worth a go”? Well, it’s not my theorem but is based on anarcho-syndicalist principles and information on how this social/economic system has worked (eg Spain 1936) and will work in the future can be found at: www.anarchistfaq.org
