Also, Second Life News Network published a nice (and long!) article by Scarlett Qi. Unfortunately many viewers (at Wonkette, too) didn’t recognize the iconic “pink slip” of Code Pink. My favorite line in the SLNN article: “Amazingly, it was not chaotic.” Quite true.
Many marchers carried picket signs such as “Avatars Against the War,” “Make Art Not War,” “End of an Error,” and “Absolut Corruption” showing Bush and staff in an Absolut bottle. Pink dresses were in style, distributed by Code Pink (a women for peace group) that said “No Peace, No Pussy.”
The rally lasted for approximately two hours. During the first hour and a half, residents shouted out messages of peace. There was no orderly method of speaking. Each spoke when they wished, adding their short phrase of hope and wish to end the war and bring the troops home. Amazingly, it was not chaotic. Many joined in a dance for peace and avatars wiggled wildly to their own tune of peace.
Representatives from seven countries (France, Germany, Holland, Netherlands, U.K., Spain and Canada) were present along with residents of more than 15 U.S. states.
