I wrote a few months ago about labour unions gathering in Second Life for a virtual protest against IBM. Well, the the trend is continuing, this time in a more celebratory fashion.
The Trade Union Congress in London has been organizing virtual May Day celebrations in Second Life. Participants can learn about the campaign for a minimum wage in Germany, get training on using Second Life for online organization, or – and this just seems a little bizarre to me – chat with other virtual activists in a virtual bar over a pint of virtual beer.
You can check out some commentary on the celebrations here. There’s even a snapshot of the virtual bar. And don’t miss the dance party this evening.
