Tent State "Mimics" Social Movements

For the tenth year in a row, Rutgers Tent State returns like an annual rite of spring, as the Targum describes today in "Students occupy University for 10th Tent State."  Whether or not the protesters have an impact on anyone but themselves is an open question, and you have to wonder when a protest leader is quoted as saying that "the event mimics how real social movements work."  So, does that mean that Tent State is just a pretend social movement?  That the students are just going through the motions, pretending that they might have an impact?
