     “They come together and they’re all of a certain age, and they’re full of energy and they make a big impact. The trouble is, with many of these organised via Twitter and other forms of social media, “it comes together very quickly but then it fades very quickly,” he argues. “I think the difficulty is to transform movements like Occupy into a bigger movement with some internal democracy. So it becomes an organisation that has staying power, rather than one that comes up quickly and then dissipates. I wish it would – I have great respect for the people that organise it. I wouldn’t put them down in any way, but the difficulty they face is integrating into a permanent resistance.”

    Didn't we say something like that and don't we critiicise certain anarchists and Left Communists such as the ICC for failing to appreciate the same problem in their attacks on the trade union structures.
