Brazil: World (not) Naked Bike Ride

In the Brazilian version of the World Naked Bike Ride (WNBR), in São Paulo, nudism was ruled out: “According to the a lieutenant who was patrolling the demonstration, the order was to arrest anybody who displays their genitalia. In other words, it is fine to protest… but not naked. The funny thing is, this is the country of carnival, where every year there are naked women on national network television for 3 days, yet the nation is shocked by cycling nudists”, reports br.br101.org [pt]. One person was arrested.
