Naked cyclists seek to reclaim Spanish streets 


Naked save for their regulation crash helmets, a group of militant cyclists held anti-car protests in several Spanish cities, calling for "more human and liveable cities," less pollution and more room for pedestrians and bicycles.

The initiative, launched by a group calling itself the Aragon cyclonudists, took place in the capital Madrid and in Zaragoza, Pamplona, Barcelona and Huesca.

Slogans included "Naked against the traffic: This city is mine."

"We propose a type of city in which residents retake possession of their own outdoor spaces, where less travel is needed and in which the emphasis is on pedestrians and less polluting forms of transport," the organizers said in a statement.
