April 9, SF -- nude torch run for HUMAN RIGHTS everywhere

April 9, 2008 is the date of the Official
Beijing Olympic Torch Run in San Francisco.
This is the only U.S. city on the Torch's world tour.
The national and international media will be here.

We already have a quorum for a nude torch run,
to happen after the official run.
We are inviting you and your nude friends to join us.
This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make
an indelible statement for human rights.

12:30 pm sharp
near the front of Tacqueria Pancho Villa
Pier 1, the Embarcadero (waterfront side)
[ the next building north from the Ferry Building]
Look for faux "torch" labeled "Human Rights"

After the Official Run passes (estimate 1:10 pm), we will jog/walk fast to Bay/Embarcadero. When the Official Torch Run returns from the Marina District, we will follow the Official Run to the closing ceremony at Justin Herman Plaza. I estimate the total distance at a little over one mile.

We are not exactly a protest.
We are positively pointing out:

(1) The original Olympic Athletes participated nude;
(2) We support Human Rights, EVERYWHERE.

The original Olympic athletes covered themselves
with olive oil. I will bring Baby Oil for those who
wish the classical look.

[ Optional:
Make a faux-torch or two, labeled "Human Rights."
If you don't have one, don't worry. I am happy to relay a torch to you. Don't makle a real flame, because of Fire Marshall and permit issues. ]

Be sure to pass on this invitation to all interested parties.
