Avatars Against The War

Avatars Against The War

From reader Kiwini Oe

The Second Life Netroots group has partnered with the Second Life chapter of CodePink to help bring a virtual version of the January 27th national peace march on DC to Second Life.

The SL peace march to Capital Hill takes place Monday 2 pm


This makes, to my knowledge, the second such protest in the virtual world of Second Life, the first being by the Scottish Socialist Party against extreme right National Front of France.

In a few years such events will may well be commonplace, large, and influential.


  1. I’m guessing you’re not impressed by Virtual World protests. Is this for the same reason that you don’t want us to IM each other via our laptops at the breakfast room table?

  3. Actually this isn’t the first in-world protest. It isn’t even the first in-world protest against the war in Iraq. But it’s as you say emblematic of better things to come in virtual organizing and protest.

    Here’s my video of the event, for those who missed it.
