There are more than 7,000 members between the two groups, formed about one month ago, and the protest is also active on Twitter, another social networking site where people communicate by posting short messages.
Chambliss hopes these "virtual protests" will lead to "a real paradigm shift in Americans' perception of Native Americans." She's also discussed raising money for the preservation of the mound, which she would put into a trust.
"We did a Twitter blast," Chambliss said. "All through the world we blasted Sam's Club and we got immediate results and people started talking about it in Oxford because of this virtual protest."

P.S. Chambliss just moved back to Minnesota from Italy.
Indeed, as it was evident in the first protest against the "bright young things" summer camp event, therefore, may serve as a prelude to future online/mainstream networking demostrations, hence boycott ecetera. I'm hoping this Sam's Club protest will have the same impact as seen with the previous one.
