(Newser) – Not every Facebook-inspired flash mob is about toppling governments: A recent one in Canada has set off a national debate on women's right to breastfeed in public, reports AOL News. It began when a mother in Montreal got kicked out of a kids' store after she had discreetly begun feeding her infant in a corner. She then created this blog, which got picked up by other blogs, which led to a Facebook page, which led to about 100 mothers returning to the mall at a designated time to stage a public breastfeeding.
