The Citizens for Undead Rights and Equality (CURE) is joining forces with game publisher Capcom for some slow walks and good times. The undead organization is mustering its forces for a gathering across from the London House of Parliament on August 30 to promote zombie awareness and Capcom will be sponsoring the event.
A list of CURE’s demands:
- To permit the marriage of living and the undead
- To increase the minimum statutory retirement age to beyond death
- To make cemeteries more comfortable for their inhabitants.
Attendees will receive a limited edition t-shirt celebrating the event, and the best-dressed zombie will win a game console. “It’s going to be a great day to be undead,” says CURE spokesperson Stacey Forsythe. “Our gathering will be loads of fun, and provide a real talking point in Westminster. We’re hoping that the spectacle will bring smiles to those in the area on Bank Holiday – but also make people think about the undeadly serious issues which face zombies these days.”
"This is a brilliant cause, and one which Capcom heartily endorses," says Capcom’s Leo Tan. "As the leading publisher of zombie-related videogames, we feel very strongly that any hostile treatment they receive in our games is recognised as being entirely fictional - the undead are people too."
Members of the undead who are interested in supporting CURE’s cause can visit their official website and email email@example.com for more information.
