Occupy Boise plans wandering 'consumer zombies' for Black Friday

Members of the 75-person Occupy encampment on the grounds of the Old Ada County Courthouse in Boise plan to send "consumer zombies" out to wander among Boise shoppers on Friday in silent protest of what they consider unnecessary consumerism.

According to the Occupy Boise website, the Consumer Zombie event will take place at Boise Town Square mall from 2 to 3 p.m. Participants are encouraged to wear their Occupy Boise T-shirts.

The Boise events will take place in solidarity with those in other cities. Seattle protesters will carpool en masse to Wal-Mart stores, and protesters in Washington, D.C. have planned a free market where people can donate items they don't want, and take items they do.
