Capcom to sponsor zombie protest at London House of Parliament

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 votecure@googlemail.com for more information.

    Would this not also be a great opportunity to try and get the government to reconsider the tax breaks for the games industry? I think getting everyone to protest while dressed up as a zombie would work well :D

    Yay, zombies getting rights! Down with undead oppression and all that other stuff!

    With our current government it wouldn't surprise me if Cameron or Clegg think this is a real protest and try and voice an opinion on it

    That... is so fucking funny. I wish I was out there and could participate.

    Zombies are not real people! They dont deserve rights! All they deserve is a shotgun round to the skull! ReCaptcha: This is starting to get way too hard. The letters are all blurred and squeezed together!

  • heycheri - August 16, 2010 6:45 p.m.

    Hahaha, gawd. Capcom rules. And of course they'd jump on the opportunity to be even more awesome than they already are, but I just never expected anything like this! Cool beans.

    Capcom just earned themselves a massive biscuit, this is awesome.
