Avaaz is essentially the global version of MoveOn.org — and in the short year or so that its organizers and constituents have been kicking up the spotlight on international problems, they have accomplished much.
I’m particularly supportive of Avaaz’s efforts on a Gaza ceasefire.
But while I find Avaaz’s YouTube video “Stop the Clash of Civilizations” creative and compelling — Obama Girl definitely deserved a category of her own in the 2nd Annual YouTube Video Awards.
Avaaz beat Amber Lee “Obama Girl” Ettinger in the political category.
Congrats to Avaaz. Keep making the videos — but I hope Obama Girl keeps spoofing our political scene.
