The Republican Convention kicks off today in Cleveland Ohio and the police and Secret Service are ready for any and all protests, even the naked ones.
Just before the convention opened up to celebrate the Republican Party and to officially nominate Donald Trump, 100 women got naked to stand against the GOP.
Women from as far away as Belgium came to participate in world-renowned artist, Spencer Tunick’s protest art exhibit.
Out of 1,700 women who responded to the ad for participants, 200 were eventually selected and invited last Friday. They showed up early Sunday morning, 100 of them got naked and held up large round mirrors as Spencer Tunick snapped away with his camera.
He would shout things like, “we love you all” and “this is beautiful” while he pictured the diverse group of women standing in their birthday suits holding mirrors over their faces.
Spencer calls the art instillation, “Everything She Says Means Everything”.
The “protest” art installment is aimed at the GOP and their “war on women”. Ironically, Donald Trump has given more women a chance to speak at convention than any republican in history.
Protests have become a way of life recently and after what happened during the Black Lives Matter protest in Dallas and even the violent Trump protests over the primary season, this protest is a refreshing change.
Spencer Tunick’s and these 100 brave women are protesting beautifully, and this comes in the middle of Cleveland trying to decide if it should suspend “open carry” because of a call to arms by the New Black Panther Party planning to protest.
It doesn’t matter if you agree with the art exhibit or not, this is the kind of freedom of speech that our constitution protects. Spencer captured the beauty of protesting, and that is something America has somehow forgotten. Hopefully this will remind us how beautiful we all really are.
Except ISIS, there is nothing beautiful about ISIS.
