Documentary on CBC Newsworld - World Naked Bike Day

I watched the documentary from 'The Lens' last night entitled 'Naked,' a documentary which focused, for one segmnent anyway, on World Naked Bike Day and illustrated not only their message, but the conflicting attitudes of different North American cities toward such provocative protests. While I cannot find a video source, as it may not be available on the net, the program will be replayed on June 2nd and is definitiely worth the watch.

Disrobe for dissent, calendars for causes, nudes against nukes. A new phenomenon with old roots is gaining momentum -- busting out, peeling off, and hanging loose, all around the globe.

From Europe to Australia, people of all ages are stripping off their clothes to send messages via the media: "Peace! No Bush! We'd rather go naked than wear fur!"

Since 2001, over 50,000 people have participated in at least 90 nude protest events around the world. At the same time, the "Calendar Girls" of Rylstone, England rocked the world of charitable donations by posing as pin-up girls. These middle-aged moms raised over a million dollars for leukemia, demonstrating what a bit of cheek can do for a cause.

Naked is a thought-provoking and humorous one-hour documentary by Mary Bissell about people who use nudity to affirm their values and fight for their beliefs. From anti-war nude protestors in Marin County, to nudist bicyclists in North Carolina and breast cancer survivors in Calgary, this show reveals the political reasons beneath the very personal act of taking it all off.
