April 18, 2007: Naked Mexican protest



Been a while since IotD featured naked protest. When I saw this one at 20minutos.es I figured it was... half-decent. Official caption, Babelfish-translated:

Quote:
Farmers of the denominated group 400 Towns, of the Mexican state of Veracruz, protest half-naked in the main streets of the City of Mexico by the supposed despoliation. This manifestation has become a custom, since twice per year they go to the capital to walk naked by the avenues, without no authority solves its demands.
So not only a naked protest, but a regular naked protest. And their beef is so unclear that the translation can't really tell us what it is. Here's guessing that guy on their crotch is not their hero?

A little Googling for "400 towns" gets us some further detail about the previous protest six months ago:

Quote:
Hundred of men and women of the farmer Movement of the 400 Towns took off the clothes in favor of demand attention to a denunciation in the House of Representatives, against the legislators Jorge Uzcanga , Miguel Angel Yunez and Juan Bustillos Montalvo.

The movement accuse the deputies of acts of corruption and aggression against members of the organization, and in the case of Uzcanga guilty of the execution of the farmer Manuel Rodríguez.Durante .

The 400 Towns Movement looks for get back their territories robbed in Veracruz Mexico.The women which completely naked, demand the liberation of the politic prisioners of the movement.
Ah, and the women:

Yay, midgets!



Shawnee123  Wednesday Apr 18 09:53 AM

Speedy, how do you do eet so fasssssst?



Sheldonrs  Wednesday Apr 18 10:39 AM

Why is it that the people willing to take off their clothes in public...shouldn't?



Shawnee123  Wednesday Apr 18 10:43 AM

Point to ponder, Shel!

It would be really funny if they had cut a hole in the picture, and had their schlongs sticking out of the guy's mouth, or in place of his nose.



LabRat  Wednesday Apr 18 11:43 AM

Just protesting another dickhead in power...

That reminds me, G-dub is coming to a neighboring town tomorrow. Maybe I should try that! Nothing would scare him into submission more than me wearing just a piece of paper!

Most of them don't look that bad to me. And the PETA tactic of using hawt scantily-clad volunteers has always struck me as exploitative rather than simply attention-getting.

Really? The ones I know protested all the time. "Stop! You're killing me! I won't be able to sit or walk for days!"

Shame on you Sheldon - only fit people should have opinions worth protesting? Interesting idea though - aesthetic terrorism. Obese women protesting naked for free access to dieticians and counselling... could work!

When I first glanced at this photo, it looked to me like the guy on the right has one massive donger. Then I noticed it was just someones arm in the background.
