Power To The People

Last night saw the savour of the EMD cinema (Hooray!). This was via the help of an organised protest that took place outside the town hall, whilst a decision was being made of the cinema’s future, by councillors inside. You could follow the hearing on twitter, by searching for tags @Saveourcinema and #awsomestone. I’m guessing that the whole campaign was fuelled by the internet and the people of Waltham Forest realised that they weren’t alone in trying to save the cinema. Power to the people can be a powerful thing indeed.
Ok, so there’s still a long way to go before it can be brought back to its finest glory. But, so far so good and the cinema doesn’t seem to be going the same way as the local dog stadium.
