Naked as a Jay Bird…flying the instrusive skies.

Akbar Lightning will be protesting the new scanners to be used at American airports by organizing a group of fliers to take off their clothes while standing in line for security. If you are interested in participating, to protest the growing invasion of privacy, and the growing paranoid style of the social life, then contact me via email at [email protected] The plan is as follows: I will get at least 50 people, the more the merrier, to purchase cheap flights, like the occasional $69 flights that are offered, then we will show up and assume the same area in line for security, and once we are all there in line we will take off our clothes in order to show the security guards that we are not hiding anything. It is a protest that is, innately, non-violent, and it ‘exposes’ us as human beings, animals that have to live with one another, and shows the coldness and brutality of the machines that we have been submitting to for years. Afterall, we don’t even know if such scanning devices are a threat to our health. Invasion of our privacy is a ‘threat to my security.’ we have to get sensible, we have to find a way to create meaningful dialogue about safety, about the nature of terrorism, and about how to begin trusting each other and building a true community.

as an aside, this protest will be documented for publicity purposes, so if you are interested in the project but cannot participate, please help us by spreading the word. Also, participants in the project will earn honorary Apprenticeship Certificates from Globatron University.

    Did you get any takers yet? I’d love to be apart of it but the distance that separates us would make it hard for me to be in the photo. I bet you could get some takers if you posted on the NYC craigslist. Keep me posted on this. I could see this happening all over the U.S.

    The photo in this post is very odd. It might make us look more attractive even. If I looked like that I don’t think I’d be ashamed of taking my shirt off at the beach.
