BODY FREEDOM ACTIVIST GAMELI ANUMU GETS BRUTALIZED BY SFPD FOR NOT GETTING DRESSED IN 5 MINUTES
Dear body freedom supporters,
Please join us for a protest against the nudity ban on the 1-year anniversary of its implementation. Please come to Jane Warner Plaza on Saturday, February 1st @ 12 noon for a rally and a body freedom parade. (In case of rain the protest will be held at the Center for Sex and Culture at 1349 Mission Street in San Francisco.)
We have come a long way in this past year. The power brokers are starting to realize that we are not going to give up our rights to body freedom.
While a year ago I was instantly arrested in the middle of my speech along with 3 other nudist activists, this time around the police department is actually considering giving us a permit. We are still waiting for their final word. In the past we applied for parade permits 7 times and each time we were denied or ignored. This time for the first time ever our permit application is going to be sent to the higher management, and is most likely to be approved. (Stand by for more announcements in the near future.)
During the nude wedding that we had in front of the City Hall on December 19 the SFPD left us alone for at least 30 minutes and let us not only do our vows naked but to dance naked for a long time. This change of attitude is the direct result of citywide and international publicity that our movement has generated since the fall of 2013. Our greatest success with local publicity so far was the front page article in the SF Chronicle that came out 2 days before the wedding. At that point the attitude of SFPD made a 180 degree turn. In contrast, on December 15, 2 days before the front page article came out we were having a protest in the Castro and the SFPD threatened us with arrests right away. Even though it was a 1st amendment protected event (protest) they had no problem violating our constitutional rights. And then 4 days later (2 days after the SF Chronicle article) we were left alone for a long time at the wedding. I am sure the presence of a huge amount of reporters from all over the world also contributed to our success. If you do a Google search for “nude wedding San Francisco” you will see pages and pages of links to all sorts of publications all over the world. The word is really getting out.
I want to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart for your invaluable support and dedication to body freedom. Many people contributed to our success in many different ways. Together we are winning! The tide has turned.
Please join us on February 1st – hopefully we are going to have a permit and be able to get completely nude without risking getting cited or arrested. Please make a speech if you have some thoughts to share. I am looking forward to seeing you!
