Albany, NY, Mar 19, 2010 — When the state wrestles with tight budgets, it's common for well-funded education and health care groups to run ads, and bring busloads of protesters to Albany to rally against proposed cuts. This year, an authentic grassroots movement has begun in response to Governor Paterson's plan to close a number of state parks and historic sites. This movement involves little money and, in keeping with modern tactics, has been conducted primarily on the Internet. Karen DeWitt reports.
