Communistic Troublemaking

Whilst not actively scripting, building or taking tea with like-minded folk, as I have mentioned previously, I am known to be involved in politics, much as I'm sure that many of you find that a bore. Occasionally I am known to engage in events such as political debates, helping in the construction of a Black History Month exhibit, or, in the case of last Sunday, a protest rally regarding the shameful laws recently passed in the state of South Dakota. Whilst I am not personally affected by the laws of the United States, it is a matter of both principle and international solidarity.

Merely touch the image below to view photographs of the event:

At the start

We visited Democracy Island, the Neualtenberg Marketplatz and the Welcome Area, pursued by a helicopter from the Metaverse Messenger and a selection of our regular team of griefers, who were actually relatively quiet and unobtrusive (once muted, anyway). It was only upon reaching the Welcome Area that we received a little opprobium from those around us - I believe that they were put out at their in-depth and wide-ranging debates on science, ethics and the Arts (these are standard topics for conversation at Welcome Areas) being interrupted by a squalid team of ragged Communists. For which I can only apologise.

Despite having Linden approval, I and many others ended the rally being frozen by a Linden; I was forced to leave Second Life due to technical issues anyway at this point. Certainly, it was an interesting experience and, I consider, worthwhile, though as with all rallies one is never quite sure whether one has made a blind bit of difference.

Would a capitalist American like myself have been welcome at such an event, or was this strictly socialist-only?

It would depend on your tolerance for some people's sloganising, but it was attended by all sorts, not merely socialist rabble-rousers.

Do keep us apprised of developments - if indeed anything develops regarding your having been frozen.

Not heard back from them as yet - but then, I do imagine that they are somewhat busy with the fabled One Point Nine.
