The nudity ban in San Francisco is scheduled to come into effect on February 1st. Nudist activists filed a class action law suit against the city of San Francisco to stop the ban on Constitutional grounds. If Judge Chen grants us preliminary injunction the ban will not go into effect on February 1st and is most likely to be killed altogether. If Judge Chen doesn't grant us preliminary injunction public nudity will be illegal starting February 1st.

Regardless of how Judge Chen rules, come protest the nudity ban and celebrate body freedom with us! If Judge Chen grants us preliminary injunction public nudity will be legal at least until he is done with our case which may take a number of hearings. If Judge Chen denies the injunction, public nudity will be illegal in San Francisco starting on February 1st. However, the US Constitution protects political speech. If we get arrested or fined while at the protest nude it will be a blatant violation of our 1st Amendment right. Should the city authorities chose to arrest us it will greatly strengthen our case against them. Either way we win and they lose. If you choose not to get naked please join us anyway. Bring a camera if you can.
