Nude cyclist protest

Despite the wind and rain, cyclists in Brussels took their bikes to protest, in the nude.

Despite the wind and rain, cyclists in Brussels took their bikes to protest, in the nude. The annual demonstration, know as Cyclonudista, is against car traffic in cities. Police stopped two protesters for infringement of decency before releasing them after friends circled the vehicle. "The nudity has allowed the protest to gain visibility in the media," one of the organisers, Jerome Nature, told AFP. The protest was over "public space being monopolised by cars, which impose their law on us: aggression, speed, danger and pollution, transforming cities into hostile places," he said.
