The protestor sign is a weapon in Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record. It is a picket sign bearing the CURE logo, wielded by zombified CURE activists.

In Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, Andrea Brenser wields a sign in the Arena before she is killed. Several protestor signs can be found in the Americana Casino restroom during the mission Chuck the Role Model. In Off the Record, several signs can be found in the Uranus Zone restroom during Case 2-2: A Familiar Face.
