A trio of protesters from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals stripped down to their underwear on Amsterdam's central square on Tuesday to protest bullfighting in Spain and Portugal.
Protester Lauren Bowey said PETA plans similar protests in capital cities around Europe in the coming year, because tourists attending bullfights help keep them in operation.
"The arenas are a quarter full, but it's appealing to tourists," she said. The protest drew several hundred gawkers in the course of a half hour.
Asked whether she wasn't cold with just a sign board covering her breasts, Bowey told one tourist "it's nothing compared to what the bulls go through."
Funny how almost everything a topless woman says starts to make sense...
It was quite a nice day in Amsterdam today, though perhaps still a bit too nippy to want to stand naked on a public square.
