Cyclists in naked protest.
Around 200 semi-nude bicycle riders snarled trafficAa in downtown Sao Paulo to protest about car pollution and dangerous riding conditions in the city. The demonstration drew the attention of motorists and passersby alike with no incident reported other than the arrest of one of the riders who had decided to take all his clothes off, city traffic officials said.
"Our nakedness shows how we feel as cyclists riding in traffic next to motorists well protected inside their vehicles," a demonstrator said. The naked pedal pushers were part of the World Naked Bike Ride, an organisation holding similar events in some 70 countries to protest "indecent exposure to cars". The group plans to hold similar events in Brazil in the coming months.
