Occupy Wall Street Goes Zombie Today

Kim LaCapria

The Occupy Wall Street protests are going into their third week, as demonstrations spread to cities like Boston, Melbourne, Montreal and Prague.

Today, one of the demonstration's designated spokespeople, Patrick Bruner, urged protestors to dress as zombies and engage in some banker mockery as protests stretch into day 16. A directive regarding the zombie initiative indicated:

Everyone come dressed as a corporate zombie! This means jacket and tie if possible, white face, fake blood, eating monopoly money, and doing a slow march, so when people come to work on Monday in this neighborhood they see us reflecting the metaphor of their actions. Tell your friends, Facebook it, Twitter it, and it can be MJ Thriller-style too! Create a different image than police brutality!
You guys should all put on spotless tailored suits, slick back your hair, and march around Zuccotti Park in neat rows, shouting into cell phones about your investments. That would make a statement, and also shut up all the "dirty stinky hippie"-haters, at least for a day or so.
