Today we are in the United Nations Association sim, protesting the violence going on right now against the Libyan people, who have risen up to overthrow Muammar al-Gaddafi.
This protest action was initiated by no organization, but rather by individuals who felt they wanted to express their rage at this unprecedented use of bloody force by the Gaddafi regime against their own people.
Several Activist groups are represented among the protesters here today: SLLU, Amnesty International, Four Bridges, Anti-Nazi League, No Pasaran!, In Soldarity with Egypt, SL Marxists.
We wait together and watch Al Jazeera and Twitter for breaking news.

To quote one activist who helped to bring this protest action together today: “We are here in (Second Life), We are there in (Real Life). We are everywhere. We demand Freedom, Peace, and Human Rights for Libyan People.”
