How To Give Your Protest Exposure

The other day, I caught a story on the radio that really made me question some peoples reasoning skills. The World Naked Bike Ride 2006 was exactly that ... a chance to gather a large group of people to ride bicycles naked in protest. Protest what you ask? Oil dependency. Where the correlation of oil and nudity come together ... I'm not really sure, but the bicycle part at least makes sense. Personally I'm all for people publicly protesting what they believe in, so long as is it done in a peaceful manner. But riding around on bikes naked has no other purpose than shock value. And truthfully, ten nude bikers would not draw nearly the attention that 2,000 clothed bikes would ... so why even bother to go in a birthday suit? Any chance your organization had of being taken seriously was just "stripped" away. What's next ... gang brawls at the library to promote literacy?
