political flashmobbing

From the Star-Telegram in Fort Worth, TX:

"Fueled by a frenzy of text messaging and radio and television reports, hundreds of Tarrant County students walked out of their schools Tuesday to protest proposed changes in federal immigration laws.

Throngs of students waving Mexican flags and chanting slogans converged on downtown Fort Worth. Police officers in patrol cars and on horseback struggled to keep them on sidewalks.

Some students with cellphones said they had received this text message: 'Latinos, Tuesday is the day 4 u 2 wear ur white shirt 2 let them know we are against law HR 4437. Pass 2 all Latinos.'"
