#Occupy Wichita holds Zombie Crawl against Private Prison investor Wells Fargo

(WICHITA, Kan)—

Occupy Wichita planned a zombie crawl Monday night in honor of Halloween. The group says they are protesting against Wells Fargo Bank because of what it calls the “financing of predatory, ‘pay-day’ lenders, private prison industry expansion, and political lobbyists”. 

The crawl started at 200 E. Douglas and ended a few blocks away in front of the  bank.

“This crawl is innovative because it takes an event that Wichitans already participate in and focuses that energy towards positive change in their community,” said CJ Schoch.  “We’re using the archetype of the zombie to make the point that the individuals whom hold power over Wells Fargo corporatestrategy are making mindless, destructive choices to satisfy a desire for profit that can never be satiated.”About 50 people showed up for the protest.
