Like "Thriller," But With Activists

Students dress as zombies to protest Boston University biolab.


Zombies protested the construction of a Boston University biolab, a facility that will house the world's deadliest pathogens, including anthrax and the Ebola virus, the Daily Free Press writes. The activists, who were "badly bruised, soaked in blood and decked out in torn and tattered clothing," were likely fully alive. But surely some of the bystanders and locals wished they weren't, as the zombie horde snaked through parts of Boston moaning, "We have been infected by the BU biolab" and, "The BU biolab has infected me with a terrible pathogen." Cute idea, but I'll take choreographed dance over fear-mongering preachiness any day.
