COLOGNE (Germany), Jan 9, 2016:

A Swiss artist has taken the drastic step of protesting in the buff to highlight the numerous sexual assaults, including gang rape, that took place amidst New Year’s eve celebrations here. Milo Moire, performed in the nude in front of the famous Cologne cathedral on Friday, nearby the city’s main station where a series of sexual assaults against women occurred on New Year’s eve, according to The Telegraph. She stood naked on the cathedral square, holding up a sign reading “Respect us! We are not fair game even when naked”. Police were present but did not interfere with her protest. According to the report, they also stopped several young men in the area around the main station and cathedral, asking them to move away from the area. There was widespread shock over the scale and nature of sexual attacks in the city of Cologne on New Year’s Eve. Police said witnesses have described the perpetrators as being of “Arab or North African origin”, but there’s little solid information so far on who committed the assaults. This has given ammunition to opponents of Germany’s open-door policy of welcoming refugees fleeing conflict zones in the middle east. In fact, the country has registered nearly 1.1 million asylum-seekers last year.http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/europe/germany/12089361/Artist-performs-naked-protest-in-Cologne-over-sex-attacks.html
