Announcing ‘The Thing Rights Campaign’

We’re not ones to shy away from the big issues here at The Zombie Rights Campaign. Mummies? We back them. Deadites? We’re there for them.

The upcoming Flashback Weekend, starting tomorrow in Chicago, presented us with a unique opportunity and quandry, however. There’s going to be a once-in-a-lifetime sort of event, a 30th Anniversary Screening of horror classic ‘The Thing’, presented by John Carpenter himself.

Thus my quandary: should we stand up for Things?

Things aren’t Zombies, clearly. And while they may be assembled from reanimated corpses, it’s pretty clear they’re alive, in a biological sense. No Undeath or mysticism. But.. they’re so oppressed!

So, side-project time. The ZRC, for one weekend anyway, will also be the TRC: Thing Rights Campaign.

We have a page and a pamphlet up to educate the public, a hotel room booked and tickets purchased. Tomorrow we shall represent the interests of our shapeshifting alien friends in the one place on Earth where those interests most need defending (outside, perhaps, of Area 51).

We’ll let you know how that goes.
