zombies in leicester

A group of about 200 concerned citizens dressed as zombies this weekend and marched through the British city of Leicester to highlight the city’s lack of preparation for an uprising of the undead. After Leicester resident Robert Ainsley learned (via a freedom of information request) that the city did not have a zombie contingency plan built into its emergency preparations, he and 26-year-old politics graduate James Dixon used Twitter and Facebook to mobilize the masses. The demonstrators walked from the famous Haymarket Memorial Clock Tower to the offices of city council in protest.
