After a Not In Our Name gathering in October we were warned that anyone who organizes a protest demonstration will be fired and anyone who attempts to organize a union will be fired. The McMurdo Station Manager eventually told us that if we do anything of the sort, we must not give any impression that the National Science Foundation supported us in any way: No buildings, vehicles, or infrastructure could be in any of our photos. When asked about ECW, the extreme cold weather gear we are issued, he told us we were not permitted to wear it in any photos we take. So we decided to have this Naked Demonstration, entirely content free but conveying our strong feelings about an undisclosed issue. It was pretty chilly that day, and not just because of the weather.
