Naked Religious Protest

You don’t hear about this sort of thing every day:

In Israel the dispute continues over how to interpret its Festival of Matzot (Prohibition of Leaven) Law, 5746-1986, (also known as the “Hametz Law”). Last year, a court held that its ban on the public display of any leavened product for sale or consumption during Passover did not prevent the sale in a closed place of business of leavened products. The Haredi (ultra-Orthodox) community is still distressed over the ruling. This week, according to Arutz Sheva, to protest the interpretation, yeshiva student Aryeh Yerushalmi entered a Tel Aviv grocery store, went to the bread section, and stripped naked (except for a sock over his private parts). He says Israeli law bans performing an indecent act in a public place, but if a grocery store is not “public” for purposes of the Hametz Law, it should not be for the indecent exposure law either.

Lady Godiva Rides Again

As has become traditional here at Naked Protesters, we can’t resist publishing images of our patroness, Lady Godiva. This one is from a vintage postcard:

More Naked And Pregnant Protesting

Remember last year’s naked and pregnant protest against something to do with hog raising? Well, Peta Europe has done it again:

Spanked Protester, Redux

Remember this grainy old newspaper photo of British cops spanking a Viet Nam war protester? Well, there’s a much better copy of the image at Kinky Delight, of which this here is a radically cropped and reduced version:

Naked For Glaciers

I don’t know how I missed this last year when it happened:

nude protesters on a glacier

You’re looking at a Spencer Tunick / Greenpeace collaboration, described here:

Artist Spencer Tunick and Greenpeace present a living sculpture: hundreds naked volunteers symbolise the vulnerability of the glaciers under climate change.

Spanking Sarcozy

Well, his butt is naked, and he’s protesting, so I guess this is close enough to naked protest. Although, to be fair, I think he’s protesting getting spanked:
