Anti-War Protest in Habbo Hotel Tomorrow

What organizers claim will be the largest online protest ever is to be staged tomorrow within online game/social networking site Habbo Hotel.

Participants will gather in the Euro-teen hangout for an antiwar rally sponsored by Habbo and War Child, a U.K. group which assists kids affected by war in Iraq, Afghanistan, Democratic Republic of Congo and Uganda. According to War Child’s website:

War Child and Habbo are teaming up for what promises to be the largest online protest ever. On 19th September, in the run up to UN International Day of Peace, teens will gather in Habbo hotel to raise awareness about the effects of war. Habbo is a virtual community of millions of young people, who hang out, play games and get involved in these kind of events.

    Most of these so-called protestors are probably just gonna log in, leave their avatar idling in the room and go play some war-based game on their consoles anyway.

    In sociology, we have a term.  Its used in Grand Theft Childhood, I believe.  It’s called SLACKTIVISM.

    Its where you do something online that makes you think you’re being an activist and makes you feel good about yourself, but doesn’t actually help anyone in the real world.  It is the worst kind of activism.

     At least there doing something. And online activism is how obama beat. Clinton, so it can make a difference.

     How dare they question authority! War is always justified, this particular war is going fine and is being fought for totally moral and above board reasons. Those little assholes! How dare they try to make difference or think independtly.

    "teens will gather in Habbo hotel to raise awareness about the effects of war. Habbo is a virtual community of millions of young people, who hang out, play games and get involved in these kind of events."

    And that, right there, is why no one gives half a flying fuck, thank god. ‘Millions of young people who hang out, play games and get involved in these kind of events’.  One of these things is not like the others, one of these things just doesn’t belong.

    Also, if you’re not aware of the effects of war, you were kind of a cunt to begin with.  Yeah, war sucks, but its not the worst of all things.  Go back to your games and let people with the intelligence not to play Habbo Hotel in the first place argue about it.

    Actually, I was more arguing that no one cares what you do in an online universe.  If you want to protest, grow the spine to stand outside, march with a sign, brave the elements and the sun, and stand, instead of sitting in your home playing a game that no one cared about to begin with.

    I suppose people who frequent Habbo Hotel might notice this…..you know, a whole bunch of 11-15 year olds with no voting power.

    Besides, a protest is only worth a shit if people actually SEE YOU!!!!  Nobody cares if a bunch of online avatars are saying "War is bad" because it brings zero attention.  Put about 500,000 people on the front steps of the white house with the signs and have them stopping traffic, then people take notice.

    If I wanted to annoy protesters I’d go find real ones. AUSTIN 3:16 signs always irritate people with real causes, no matter where they sit on the political spectrum.

    I suppose marching online is better for everybody. The marchers don’t have to go out, the rest of the world doesn’t have to give a damn. It’s win-win!

    This can’t end well. I predict Anonymous will get involved somehow
