Are zombies getting younger?

An 18 minute gore-spattered short film in which adorable dogs battle zombies?

A zombie apocalypse unites a ragtag pack of dogs in the ruined streets of Miami. Immune to the epidemic, they must stick together to survive in the midst of ferocious undead and human survivors in this unauthorized sequel to “Homeward Bound.” Sit. Stay. Play dead…

Oh dear me, yes.

Campaigners from the Jubilee Debt Campaign get their zombie on in support for Irish network Debt Justice Action outside the Irish Embassy in Grosvenor Place this morning – ahead of tomorrow’s €1.25 billion payment to unsecured Anglo bondholders.

Jubilee Debt Campaign is arguing for a ‘jubilee-style’ debt cancellation for Europe. Jubilee’s Nick Dearden sez:

“It is totally unjust to make Ireland’s people – especially the
poorest in that country – pay for the crimes of speculators and the banking elite.
A year ago George Osborne called Ireland a ‘friend in need’. We call on the British government to assure Ireland that they would not take punitive measures if the government halted payment on these unjust debts, and that the UK would assist in a fair write-down of
Ireland’s debt.”
