One of the most exhilarating performances took place on Wednesday in Hamburg as 1,000 actors showed up to the city’s center shuffling and clawing through the streets in eerie silence as zombies to protest the G20 summit.
I am surprised they didn’t shoot at them and kettle them, like they did back in Toronto when the G20 summit took place.
The performance lasted 2 hours in a public appeal for more humanity and self-responsibility ahead of the G20 summit.
The people that orchestrated the zombie performance in Hamburg said that the show was created to emphasize that change can come from single individuals.
“We cannot wait until change happens from the world’s most powerful, we have to show political and social responsibility — all of us — now!” a spokesman for the actors said.
“Our campaign is a further symbol for the fact that many people do not want to put up with the destructive impact of capitalism any longer,” the statement continued. “What will save us in the end is not our account balance but someone who will offer their holding hand.”
The zombie protest was held ahead of the G20 summit, which officially kicks off on Friday.
Wednesday saw the largest presence of zombies in Hamburg but just earlier this week, there were smaller groups of people dressed as zombies popping up around the city caked in dusty gray clay.
When the G20 summit starts on Friday, organizers expect over 10 thousand people to take part in the protests in Hamburg.
Other than the G20 protests that are going to take place in Hamburg, people also expect to see alot of confrontation between politicians, especially on the issue of climate change, which Trump ain’t rolling with.
