An article concerning student movements as manifest through Facebook on USAToday.com mentioned a College of William and Mary student’s group in opposition to Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli’s letter about discrimination policies.

Casey Allen Sears ’11 promoted a protest through the group against Cuccinelli’s assertion that public universities should back away from policies against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation.

“In the 48 hours from the creation of the event, we had more than 700 people saying they were attending,” Sears said. “It’s really easy to organize a mass movement.”
