Recently, protesters dressed as zombies took over Wall Street to demonstrate their displeasure with the “soullessness” of corporate America. For decades, the zombie genre has been used as metaphoric images providing social and political commentary. It would only be fitting that zombies in this situation convey the mindlessness and apathy of our current economic predicament.

Plus, it’s a great excuse to dress up as a zombie. And if you’re interested, they’re organizing more protests in Boston, Atlanta, Denver, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Pittsburgh and Baltimore. Activists are also organizing protests abroad in Prague, Frankfurt, Toronto, Melbourne, Australia and Tokyo.
