UK Zombie Activists Will Get Their Day in Court

Here’s a heartwarming update to the scandalous mistreatment of protesters and Zombie Rights activists that we reported on (back in May):

Fifteen people who were arrested preemptively on the day of the Royal Wedding have been granted permission to challenge their arrests by way of Judicial Review. The claimants, who were arrested from different locations across central London, had not committed any crimes. Those arrested included people on their way to peaceful protests, as well as people the police merely suspected of being on their way to protests. None of the claimants were charged and all were released almost as soon as the public celebrations had finished.

“It is our view that the treatment of our clients was unlawful under common law and was in breach of their fundamental rights under the European Court of Human Rights articles 5, 8, 10 and 11” said a spokesperson from Bhatt Murphy. “The apparent existence of an underlying policy that resulted in those arrests is a matter of considerable concern with implications for all those engaged in peaceful dissent or protest.”

Those arrested include members of the ‘Charing Cross 10’ who were on their way to a republican street party, the ‘Starbucks Zombies’ who were arrested from an Oxford Street branch of Starbucks for wearing zombie fancy dress, and a man who was simply walking in London and was stopped and arrested by plainclothes officers because he was a ‘known activist’. The arrests have been dubbed ‘precrime’ in many circles.

Well! The wheels of justice may be slow, but at least they’re moving, both for free speech in general and Zombie activism in particular. Perhaps a new, and much Zombie Friendlier, day is dawning for our friends across the Atlantic?

The Zombie Rights Campaign certainly hopes so, and strongly endorses this continued pursuit of justice for all, both Living and Undead.
