Zombie Walk Against Walker: A Peaceful Protest by the Differently Animated

IMG_1493

I think today demonstrates once and for all the link between talking about the Differently Animated and discussing politics, for today here in Madison we had a fascinating example of peaceful political activism – by the Differently Animated and their allies.

Yes, it was the Zombie Walk Against Governor Walker, and the ZRC was there. We had our banner, pamphlets and a bunch of wristbands, and we mingled, discussed Zombie Rights and gently pushed our literature on anyone we could get to pay attention.

Ahh, activism.

The Zombies were out in force to show solidarity with the Living hordes, aka ‘Unions’, who are faced with having their fundamental rights to gather and work collectively to better their lives stripped away by a college dropout who somehow stumbled his way into the Governor’s mansion (and promptly cut corporate taxes by over 100 million dollars, in a recession).

Zombies know what it’s like to be told that they can’t gather together, can’t work together, aren’t allowed to form hordes to protest for a better Unlife, so they came out today to stand with their Living colleagues and lurch toward a brighter future. And this time, I think they got some serious results.

For who else should show up to the Zombie Walk but one of the two men running in a very tight race to be Madison’s next mayor, former Mayor Paul Soglin, also known as ‘Hizzoner’:

Mr. Soglin even discussed Zombie Rights with the marchers, promising to support rights for Zombies and talking about backing a referendum on the subject! Clearly we need to get this in writing from his campaign, as well as a response from his rival, Mayor Dave. Perhaps Madison will be the first major American city to officially recognize Zombie Equality?

We can only hope. I’ll let you know about their official responses. In the meantime, it’s good to see a politician catering openly to the Zombie Vote. That’s serious progress!

The full flickr set of all the pictures from today’s Zombie Walk and associated protests is here, and the collection of all pictures we’ve taken since this whole thing began is here, while the ZRC’s official Youtube channel is here.

Below I’m embedding two short videos from the rally as well. Enjoy, and thanks from the ZRC to everyone who came out today in support of Zombie Activism and Civil Rights.

    Love your site, and really appreciated your efforts on April 2.

  2. John Sears says:

    Thank you! We had a lovely time reaching out and interacting with the local Zombie Community. When the Walker recall starts we should totally have another one of these; I’m sure they’ll take petitions that are a little bloody.

    I think your site is biased and you have no business showing up to shows like Geek Kon this weekend as Vendors, promoting your slander of Wisconsin’s Governor Scott Walker. Governor Walker has done a lot of great things for this State and can’t wait till he wins re-election. Best Governor ever!

  4. John Sears says:

    I thought this comment by Animelover was a joke, or at worst insipid, but apparently the same individual has shown up on Facebook trying to get us kicked out of Geek.kon for being too liberal. I’m leaving the comment up, as it’s basically harmless, except for the damage it does to readable English prose. The other stuff.. we’ll see how that goes.

    I think this is great :) (I was there, so I would).

    Obviously the site has a zombie bias, why isn’t it allowed a liberal one?
