c. appear violent because of a and b.
Now, an alternative take would be to protest naked.
Imagine. The police have formed a cordon around a protest. Then all of a sudden, to huge cheering a line of COMPLETELY BOLLOCK NAKED people form a line facing the police. Do the police beat those naked people with truncheons whilst the BBC News 24 films it all? Are naked people threatening? No!
I think there needs to be a debate about whether naked protest is effective protest - not just protesting about the right to be body visible, but about anything.
It draws attention to you and your opinions, and many of the labels that could be hung on regular protesters just don't stick if you are in the buff (apart from being a nutter perhaps).
Anyway, is there any interest in forming a NOMBLES brigade?
