In 2012, rides take place across the UK between 26 May and 10 June, and we expect several thousand riders.
-Using the power and beauty of our bodies to send out a message of peace, PEACE – it’s such a simple word, but it has many connotations in the current political climate. It takes a certain amount of courage to speak out these days. To speak out publicly, stripped of anonymity and clothing takes even more courage.

Sunday 29th June 11am Forest Row, East Sussex
Around 30 people have staged a naked protest against GM food. The protesters spelled out “no GM” with their bodies in a meadow at Forest Row, East Sussex. With the UK government claiming that it will listen to the GM Debate, many are suspicious that the it is just a ‘PR exercise’. George Monbiot said in The Guardian “that the government wants a ‘great debate’ about GM – we must call its bluff”. Our response to that is to use all means available to keep the debate at the top of the agenda.

On 12th January 2003, the first Bare Witness event took place on the Ashdown Forest in the UK. 30 people bared all to spell the word PEACE with their naked bodies. They felt compelled to use the shock of their nude bodies to send a message – this is not the way to put an end to war. They could have stayed at home in the warm and shook their heads at the news – but they came out to be vulnerable for peace.
