Mexican cyclists get naked to protest "bad drivers" and air pollution

Agence France-Presse reports via that "thousands of Mexican cyclists rode naked Saturday" in Guadalajara and Mexico City in Mexico "to protest aggressive drivers and carbon emissions from cars-and the [conservative stance] of central Mexico’s Jalisco state."


According to the report, "Some 3,000 demonstrators-some bare head to toe, others in bathing suits or underwear-braved catcalls and embarrassed smiles from residents as they biked some 12 miles (20 kilometers) to end up in Guadalajara, the biggest city in Jalisco state." Nearly 2,000 bikers in Mexico City also protested in the same fashion. The report noted that some protesters "slapped 'fragile' stickers on their bodies or painted messages on their skin: 'more bicycles, less pollution,' and 'the city is for everyone, let bikes pass.'"
