I am speechless!  A breathtaking display of ignorance on so many fronts.

Not familiarizing yourself with the country you are visiting or moving to can get you in all sorts of hot water.

Or cold water, in which 20 of them have drowned.

We are talking about refugees here, not tourists or conventional migrants. They are escaping repressive countries and have little knowledge outside their own communities. It seems to me that all such refugees ought to have a short but intensive induction into the culture of the country that is offering them protection. It would avoid a lot of cultural misunderstanding and outright crime (albeit, largely from ignorance) and give less ammunition to the far right which thrives on fear from such incidents.
Tread lightly upon the earth!

A worthy goal.

One that is achievable if there is a willingness to accept that a new land means a new life, not a continuation of the old.

trouble we arnt living in a perfect world

the sheer volume of people being dumped in unprepared communities means that the newcomers clump together, the perception is most of them arnt family groups theres a big percentage of unaccompanied males who have left their families behind.   throughout europe in recent years large influxes of immigrants have tended to keep together in their own little enclaves showing little desire to integrate into existing indiginous communities. some have been here for years and show little signs of learning to speak their new countries language.

its also apparent that there is a desire among sections of the muslim community in particular to impose muslim culture and even laws on the countries they are going to , indeed its been stated by muslim groups  that spain is the first target for conversion from cristianity to muslim.

theres a very real concern in western europe that things are going to get worse in the short term , there is a real fear that  it wont take many more incidents to spark off a backlash

The segregating of ethnic and cultural groups into separate enclaves is not new. Whether forced, by the government or voluntarily by the groups, that practice has been around for thousands of years.

What is surprising and worrisome, is that it is occurring in modern times. With the ability to study and understand past events, the fact that they are still forming is disheartening. It is a perfect display of the validity of the old adage of repeating unobserved or unstudied histories.

'We got skin, you got skin, love your body, ain't no sin': Meet the NUDE activist who regularly gets naked in public and marches against anti-nudity laws to 'free' others

    Gypsy Taub, from Berkeley, California, marches in support of nudity
    The mother and nude activist said she used to be frightened of being naked in public
    Now she regularly attends naked protests and has been arrested while nude numerous times
    She marched through San Francisco to the City Hall in protest against the city's anti-nudity rules

Taub was with a performance art group in Berkley which did a lot of public nude events. And this was before she protested with Martinez at UC Berkley in the 80's. Bless her.

As for those intolerant Muslim people threatening nudes. These people come from intolerant cultures. They are in the wrong place. We have been slowly gaining body freedom from intolerant people of other religions, for years. Just when they begin to loose their grip on us and we make progress, more of these intolerant people are imported. I think that anybody who threatens people in a host country creating disturbance needs to be thrown out of that country. If me, or my loved ones were threatened like that, there would be radical action taken against them. I find those behaviors unacceptably wrong. We would be deported or imprisoned going into their old countries for that. Yup, I've got no tolerance for the intolerant, an eye for an eye. Second amendment might be the first lesson to teach them, immediately, in a most personal way. Shoving religion at anyone forcibly... That article got my ire.

in the uk it appears that immigrants from anywhere have "human rights"  enshrined by eu dictat enforced rigorously by a vastly out of touch court system headed by senile judges and human rights lawyers grossly overpaid by the legal aid system.  where else would a convicted terrorist get a free house and spending money provided by the taxpayers theyve been trying to kill.

we need politicians with the balls to say "integrate or go back where you came from" 

whoops im now in danger of being branded a racist by those who dont even know the difference between race and nationality

in short were in a right mess

Well, it's good to know that with all the major problems in the world that the news editors (creators) are on the job. They have protected the tender eyeballs of everyone by blurring out butts and boobs in a photograph.

I thought that news organizations were supposed to be at the forefront of the protection of the freedoms we have been guaranteed. We certainly see plenty of blood, gore and guts with out benefit of censure.

If they are so worried about our delicate sensibilities, why is mayhem and death less of a concern than a natural human body?

Didn't they do this before? I don't remember if it was for tigers, but I seem to recall a previous event for animal awareness at the London Zoo.

I think this it's third or fourth year, it's become an annual event and always for tigers. I'm not clear on the link between tigers and nakedness, but what the heck!

Indeed.  The more often naked is seen in public, the more common it becomes to be naked and the less "offended" the public becomes. 

Naked is used in this event because it gets more media attention.  When naked becomes common it will not garner so much attention and they will try something else to support tigers.

I don't believe that there is a serious link. It was just that someone noticed that the collective noun for tigers is a streak and thought "Hey, we could market that!"

Of course there is another link; tigers prefer not to have to peel their food so naked people are a better diet for them :D

Have fun,


Ian.

Bob is right. What works the best, is used the most. In PR it's all about the bottom line.

So, Ian, since tigers have that preference, the intent of the fundraiser would be to "not be a'peeling?"

That's contrary to a naturist outlook, which is to be a'peeling whenever possible.  ;)
