Nude Protests Against Australia

Via Indymedia Ireland, protesters outside the Australian embassy are boycotting wool.

Apparently they are also boycotting cotton, nylon, hemp and silk - Nude Protesters have converged on the Australian Embassy.

The good news? No photos... Yet.

(Hat tip: Indymedia Ireland Watch)

Update: Via the comments, photos of the protesters appear here.

JIC notes "For once, they seem to be young, attractive protesters." As opposed to say......This.

Update 2: JIC notes further:
Before I posted my comment, I didn't notice the video link on the same page as the photo. Now that I've watched the video, I have to say that not only are the protesters young and attractive, but I bet that most (if not all) of them are professional models.

I doubt they were paid for the appearance as such, but there is a tradition of models appearing in PETA ads and protests to show they 'care', and that they are 'serious, intelligent people', not just empty-headed clotheshorses. Of course, a lot of the time, they do fur shows a few months later...

By the way, its ji(eye)c, not jl(ell)c.
 
I have corrected the spelling. The font at my end made it difficult.

Thanks again JLC(!)
 
No problem, I thought it was something like that.
