在紐澤西州,數以千計的高中學生遊行抗議教育津貼縮減。這場州內近年來最大規模之一的示威活動,源起於面書上的一個頁面。

這不過是一次默默的請求:一條極易被忽視的訊息在號召紐澤西州的學生們起來反對預算縮減,因為這會影響到班級的規模和選擇,以及課餘的活動。但是,卻有差不多一萬八千名學生接受了上月在面書上發起的該請求。社交網站面書一直以發佈聚會和體育賽事聞名。就在週二,許多此類網上支持者以及其他各界人士走出教室參與了這場近年來紐澤西州最大規模之一的草根示威活動。
It was a silent call to arms: an easy-to-overlook message urging New Jersey students to take a stand against the budget cuts that threaten class sizes and choices as well as after-school activities. But some 18,000 students accepted the invitation posted last month on Facebook, the social media site better known for publicizing parties and sporting events. And on Tuesday many of them — and many others — walked out of class in one of the largest grass-roots demonstrations to hit New Jersey in years.
