Americans may be increasingly willing to accept things like profiling for the sake of better airport security, but that acceptance may not be global. And some are making their feelings known in rather graphic fashion.
In Berlin’s Tegel airport recently, German protestors who don’t like the idea of full body scanners which can see through clothes walked through the airport — almost entirely without clothes.
It’s a variation on the “flashmob” concept, in which scores or even hundreds of people suddenly converge unannounced on a single point, linger just long enough to draw attention or a crowd, then disperse just as fast.
Performance art meets public protest.
The Berlin airport demonstrtors called themselves a “fleshmob.” Agree or disagree with their position, but you have to be pretty dedicated to march through the terminal in your undies in Germany in January, even if you are indoors!
