I don't even know where to start with this comment. First of all, this is not a 'movement' and I wouldn't label it as such.
Furthermore, you do know that political activity and civil society evolves with each era right? The internet, and other information mediums will always play a very large role in grassroots movements. They are used in interest groups (registration, mail information, internet, newspapers ect) through their various information campaigns. These mediums are also at the core of many movements because of their ability to unite people from different regions and expand awareness quickly.
This is the information age, you are expecting things not to have an internet component to it?
