World Naked Bike Rides to be held in Brighton, Manchester, York and London

World naked bike ride 2006

Since 2004, the World Naked Bike Ride has been spreading it's message of opposition to car culture and oil dependency in rides throughout the globe. The ride celebrates the power and individuality of the human body. Many riders will have their first experience of social and non-sexual nudity through the ride. All rides are clothing optional in the truest sense. There is no pressure for riders to go more clothed or nude than they wish. Rides range in size from the very small (Sao Paolo 2004 had 2 riders) to the very large (Zaragosa 2004 had 400 riders). The average ride is under 100 riders, but London beat the odds by having 250 riders in 2005 for it's second ever ride. There are over 100 rides planned for 2006.

Climate change is the greatest threat to ever face humanity and its happening now. Governments and big business dream of continued economic growth so won't deal with the crises. What we really need is a fundamental shift in the way we live - AWAY from consumer society, continued economic growth and power concentrated in the hands of the few. TOWARDS locally based, grassroots, community solutions.

Manchester anti-nuke demo report (& video)

On Saturday 29th March, the 20th aniversary of Chernobyl was commemorated with a procession through the city centre to Cross St Chapel, where talks about nuclear power were held.

Demonstrators wore all black and held letters spelling out 'remember Chernobyl'. An autonomous bloc left the main procession and went into shops with banners against nuclear power and climate change. They were quickly ejected from the Arndale Centre, although when the security staff thought the protestors had left, they were spotted reading their leaflets about nuclear power and the upcoming climate camp.
