On Saturday, May 8th, the Bull Moose Movement will put together a must-see spectacle combining some good ol’ street theatre and some healthy and much-needed civics discussion. On this day we will hold the first of many zombie parades at the historic and revolutionary-spirited Tompkins Square park. What’s a zombie parade you say? The Bull Moose Movement believes that unlike what the Supreme Court would like to have us believe, corporations are not people. Much like zombies, corporations do have some people-like qualities. Like zombies, most corporations are parasitic in their nature, draining the resources of their hosts, namely our communities, with an insatiable fervor. Therefore, in order to expose their true nature, we will choose the greediest, sleaziest corporations on the planet, you know, the ones that corrupt our democracy by bribing our elected officials and ultimately shape our laws and policies for their benefit at the detriment of society, and we will personify them in the form of creepy, blood-thirsty zombies.
So grab your craziest zombie gear and join us on May 8th at 2 p.m. Our hope is that our antics will help start a conversation. It’s time our communities empower themselves by verbalizing the issues that are hindering their progress. Together, we can learn from each other.
