An interesting bit of Zombie news from Haiti. I know the hearts of every single visitor and member of ZZN, like everyone else around the world, aches from what has happened there. That being said, the below article, posted on Newser.com, should be relevant for Zombie followers, and it reads as follows:
Haiti’s voodoo priests are objecting to anonymous mass burials of earthquake victims, raising fears that such desecration could result in restless souls of the dead returning as zombies. “It it not in our culture to bury people in such a fashion,” Haiti’s main voodoo leader, Max Beauvoir, told Haiti President Rene Preval in a meeting. “The conditions in which bodies are being buried is not respecting the dignity of these people.”
Tens of thousands of bodies have been dumped in mass graves outside Port-au-Prince to protect public health. Haitians are being told to place bodies on the street for collection by garbage and other trucks. More than half of Haiti’s 9 million people practice voodoo, reports Reuters. Followers believe dead bodies can be brought back to life by supernatural forces to persecute the living.
