Philippines Massacre Vigil

The League successfully supported peacekeeping efforts on for a Second Life Vigil for the Maguindanao Massacre.
On 23rd November, 57 people set out to register the nomination of a candidate for governor of Maguindanao in the Philippines. The politicians’ wife and sister led the group, who were accompanied by 31 members of the media and 2 human rights lawyers. They were stopped and attacked by 100 men. No one survived the attack.  Elections in this area have been marred by violence.
Second Life served as a venue to help increase awareness.

About the Justice League Unlimited:

The Justice League Unlimited (JLU) in Second Life in (SL) is a public service organization who pattern their avatars after classic comic book heroes. While JLU members may model their avatars after these fictional personas, the JLU is not a super-hero role-playing group. The mission of the JLU is to provide mentoring and render aid to SL residents in need, primarily new residents, in such areas as building, scripting and security. The JLU often acts as a neighborhood watch organization, patrolling heavily trafficked public areas that are prone to abuse by griefers. We also hold seminars and conventions on public safety, and help estate managers learn effective techniques for keeping their own lands safe.
