Scantily-clad Extinction Rebellion protesters bare it all as they take to the streets in Melbourne

The Gazette Staff

Extinction Rebellion activists stripped off on Saturday as they took to the streets in Melbourne for their sixth day of protests.

Climate change activists marched down Exhibition St as part of a ‘Nudie Parade’ – and left very little to the imagination. 

Women with ‘glitter boobs’ and rainbow stars covering their breasts marched in the protest. One woman had the words ‘compost the rich’ written on her body. 

A man, who was only wearing black underwear, looked like he was enjoying the day as he marched while carrying a plastic water bottle. The climate change protester also had ‘stop Adani’ painted in blue on his chest.

After vowing to ‘get nude to the knickers’, hundreds of people walked through Melbourne chanting for more action on the climate from the government.

They headed towards Bourke St and then to Melbourne Central before returning to Carlton Gardens.  

Videos were posted to the movement’s Twitter page, showing passionate protesters chanting, ‘stop the extinction, start the rebellion’.

‘The hourglass symbolises the threat of extinction and that time is running out,’ the group wrote online.
