This study presents the founding of the group named Mobilização dos Professores de Goiás (MPG) (Goiás teachers’ movement). Founded by teachers of Goiás public schools in the end of 2011, the movement’s goal was to resist the educational reforms promoted by the government back then. MPG has shown itself as an alternative to the Educational Workers’ Union of Goiás (SINTEGO), institution that officially represents the teachers’ working class in the state. Using the social networking site Facebook, it promoted a series of protests during the educational workers’ strike in 2012. For this research, 1,460 posts and 7,178 comments that were posted on MPG’s Facebook page in February and March of 2012 were documented and, from this, a research on quality and quantity was conducted to: measure the growth of the group on the social networking site; assess the relations between its posts/comments and political events; and capture the political, social, and emotional values that sustain the relationship between its members.
