So who exactly will be the visible face at these Facebook protests?

Who will be at the mike?

Christoper White?

This is not a trivial question in terms of how these events are perceived.

Good point... I don't know. I favor the idea of a non-partisan protest, and many posters on the main Facebook page have also said that. I'll ask and report back if I learn anything.

Wow.

By some estimates, only 15-20 thousand people across the country protested.

Out of 33 Million.

Guess this wasn't as important as some people believed.
