Zombie Apocalypse Simulations Create Hateful Live Entertainment

| March 30, 2012

It’s a sad statement that much of the populace today lives in constant fear of a ‘Zombie Apocalypse’. You almost can’t blame them; the media feeds our society a constant diet of Anti-Zombie terror and prejudice, from ‘The Walking Dead’ to ‘World War Z’ to an entire gamut of videogames, novels, comics and more. Still, [...]

“Mormons vs Zombies”?

| March 30, 2012

Although it’s often overlooked these days, Anti-Zombie prejudice in America was long associated with Zombies of a supernatural or religious origin rather than the Zombiism of a biological or chemical nature that so paralyzes the public consciousness lately. Zombies were supposedly a symptom of the dangerous Other, a spiritual or cultural affliction, one that presumably [...]

A Very Zombie Anime Season?

| March 29, 2012

There was a bit of a drought of Zombie anime since last spring, and now all of a sudden it’s back in a big way. And, thank the Lovecraftian gods, none of it is more ‘High School of the Dead’! Anime News Network has their Spring Spotlight out, and lo and behold, this time around [...]

‘Zombie Slayer Diox’ Apparently Hard on Zombies and on Your Eyes

| March 29, 2012

Fear Net has a review up of a new Anti-Zombie game for the 3DS called ‘Zombie Slayer Diox’, and it’s not pretty: Zombie Slayer Diox, on paper, sounds like a hell of a lot of fun: a portable title for the Nintendo 3DS that casts you as a headbanging hunter of the hungry dead that [...]

The ZRC Gets Some Positive Press!

| March 28, 2012

Our exploits over the weekend at Horrorhound Columbus were noticed by the local tentacle of the Mainstream Media, in the form of a reporter for The Columbus Dispatch. We got a pretty nice mention in their Horrorhound article, actually: At a vendor booth that bore the sign “The Zombie Rights Campaign,” Jenny Rowland of Madison, [...]

Horrorhound: Souvenirs and Research Materials

| March 28, 2012

Going to a convention for the ZRC isn’t just about outreach, of course – we also use these opportunities to gather vital intelligence on the Anti-Zombie movement, its propaganda and popularity, as well as search for other Zombie Friendly products and potential allies. We really had a great haul in this regard from Horrorhound Columbus: [...]

We Came, We Saw, We Did Some Outreach: Zombie Rights at Horrorhound Columbus

| March 27, 2012

The Zombie Rights Campaign has officially returned from our hugely successful trip to Columbus, Ohio, agitating for Zombie Rights, and we have quite the story to tell you, Zombie Allies of the Internet: We arrived at the convention center for Horrorhound and found that we had been given a premium spot for outreach, right beside [...]

Back From Horrorhound Columbus

| March 27, 2012

And boy are my arms tired! Well, no, it’s more my back after another 9 hours of driving, but hey. Got lots of photos to look through and upload tomorrow, emails to catch up on, Twittering and Facebooking (is that a verb?) as well. But for tonight? Sleep. Blessed sleep and dreams of a Zombie [...]

Getting Ready to Go to Horrorhound

| March 21, 2012

Posts and Tweets will be light Wednesday and Thursday as we’re off to Horrorhound for a weekend agitating for Undead Rights! Once there we will have lots of Twittering and pictures and outreach for you, and a full wrap-up on the blog after the convention as usual. We’re taking this Zombie Rights thing on the [...]

The New ZRC Shirt, Demons, the Necronomicon and Workplace Rights of the Undead

| March 19, 2012

At The Zombie Rights Campaign we believe in creating as broad a coalition, and being as inclusive as possible in our quest for Zombie Rights and, even more expansively, toward Undead Equality. One of the questions we get asked most at conventions, on Twitter, via website comments or anywhere else is whether we stand for [...]
