Naked actions

Estimated reading: 1 minute 62 views

Naked actions have a particular symbolic impact and can often be used to highlight a cover-up or to demonstrate that activists have ‘nothing to hide’.

During the campaign to stop the abuse of poorly paid clothing outworkers, Fairwear activists in Victoria went into shops and ‘stripped off’ to their underwear, claiming that they would rather wear nothing than wear clothes made with exploited labour.

Actions that involve nakedness should pay attention to offences discussed under the section Offensive language and behaviour.
