Wednesday’s (28th) Halloween Zombie Horror themed EDO demo ‘The Night of the Living War Dead’ turned out to be the longest noise demo yet. It was the annual halloween special, with zombies lurching outside the factory from 4pm. By 6pm, the police and workers inside the factory were checking their watches, asking each other ‘Isn’t this thing meant to finish at 6pm?’ However the 40 or so war undead continued their spooking. They were angry their lives had been cut short by bombing, and wanted to make sure the arms dealers got the message. By 6.30pm, workers kept looking out the window, hoping the demo was over so they could make a dash for it. Soon after, the cops apparently had better things to do, and left. After that the gates were rattled tirelessly by the war victims and the last few workers got the fright of their lives as their cars were chased by around fifteen bloody victims.
