Surreal anti-racist demonstration in Second Life
Wagner James Au sez, "After France's extreme right, anti-immigrant Front National opened an official HQ in Second Life, it was swarmed protests-- which quickly devolved into open war conducted with surreal weapons:"

[T]he chat log was choked over with pro and anti-Le Pen curses, most in French. And when the lag was not too overwhelming to stream audio, the whole fracas was accompanied by bursts of European techno. One enterprising insurrectionist created a pig grenade, fixed it to a flying saucer, and sent several whirling into Front National headquarters, where they'd explode in a starburst of porcine shrapnel.Link (Thanks, James!)
