Tusconans get naked for PeaceMay 10th, 2010
More than a dozen women got naked Mother’s Day morning and laid on a hill in Himmel Park to promote peace.
How does that work?
Well, the women were from Code Pink, a grassroots peace and social justice movement with the goal of ending the current wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as deterring future conflicts. And where does the nudity fit in?
“Naked peace is better than naked aggression,” participant Jhan Kold said in a news release.
“It’s a funny thing when a society allows members to be without food, homes, adequate medical care, but not their clothes. We are celebrating life and offering a potent symbol as an alternative to war. Make love, make art, make gardens…not war!”
