International Justice Center - support of justice and the International Criminal Court

Amazingly enough I've found this group at Second Life and of course there was nobody there by the time I was visiting because people have better things to do in their second lives such as virtual sex, vampiring, exploiting others, shopping, you know, all the activities that gives instant relief from boredom, emotional misery and other issues related to human condition. I have written about it at this post at my other blog.
Protecting animals rights, whether in real life and in virtual life, unites many people which is good but it took me a lot of time to discover International Justice Center and it was searching at Google not at Second Life.

"Welcome to the Global Kids International Justice Center, an online clearinghouse for public information and action in support of the ICC.

The International Criminal Court (ICC) is the world’s first truly global human rights tribunal. The ICC is designed to investigate and try those accused of committing some of the worst violations of human rights, including genocide, mass rape and war crimes.
Headquartered in The Hague, Netherlands, the ICC is investigating and trying crimes committed in Sudan, Uganda, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and the Central African Republic.

Global Kids in 2008 will be exploring the use of virtual worlds to support the ICC and global justice concerns. Activities will center around the “International Justice Center,” a virtual education and action clearinghouse where people from all over the world can learn about the court, engage with ICC officials, experts and victims, and take action in support of human rights and international justice. More importantly, the Center will serve as the hub of a new social network connecting those already doing the work on the ground with each other and with individuals new to ICC issues within Second Life."
You can reach them at their site. I know that it's a hard job fighting for humans rights but who, when or where? It' about time to have a jurisprudence for humans right violations and there is too much to be done worldwide not only in Africa.

They don't seem to be doing too well. Well they do get the information out, but besides that I'm not seeing anything tangible. That's too bad too. We can hope that this changes soon.

Have a terrific day Ana. :)
