On Sunday March 2, at 9:30 AM, 27 female students spelled a naked PEACE! in the center of the quad at Pomona College in Claremont, CA. We placed ourselves, appropriately, in front of Carnegie Hall, the building on campus where most politics courses are taught. We hope our chapter of Disrobe to Disarm will spark a national wave of nude anti-war protests on college campuses because it is our generation that will inherit the consequences of the Bush administration's decisions.
This is what this protest means to us: We are here, at college, to learn to question what we are told, to express ourselves effectively. The Government is lying. Our bodies are not. We are here. We are naked. We will not be ignored and we will not stand idly by while a massacre is committed in our name.
