As G8 demonstrations gather pace in Scotland, internet users are taking advantage of a virtual demonstration taking place on the web.
Organisers of the Make Poverty History campaign say that 38,000 people have taken part in the virtual rally at www.g8rally.com, which allows surfers to choose an avatar to take part in demonstrations in a virtual Edinburgh.
All the names of those signing up to take part in the virtual rally are being added to the online petition, the Live 8 list, which is being sent directly to the G8 leaders.
The Make Poverty History campaign has pioneered a broad approach to new media in promoting its cause. This has included SMS petitions and emails and the use of a text messaging lottery to offer tickets for Live 8.
A virtual demonstration seems all the more pertinent as news broke that police have cancelled a march on Wednesday for reasons of public safety.
