Second Life Liberation Army (SLLA) demand basic political rights for avatars
March 12, 2007 | By Peter Bihr |
The Second Life Liberation Army (SLLA), who have been getting plenty of coverage for their
terror attacks virtual mock terror attacks, demands basic political rights for Second Life avatars. From their mission statement:
The Second Life Liberation Army (SLLA) was formed as the ‘in-world’ military wing of a national liberation movement within Second Life. The movement contends that political rights should be established within Second Life immediately. As Linden Labs is functioning as an authoritarian government the only appropriate response is to fight.
The SLLA will conduct a political and military campaign to ensure its demands are met and avatar rights are established.
The SLLA’s demands are simple:
The establishment of basic political ‘rights’ for avatars.
(…) The SLLA will not seek to harm the normal operation of the world and will only attack agents of Linden Labs and other strategically important sites within Second Life.
Their bomb explosions look pretty funny, and of course it’s an ironic mock campaign. However, they do make a good point there. ;)
