PETA Protests In Spokane

They didn’t smell fishy, but the three protesters in front of downtown Spokane's Sushi.com restaurant tried to give the impression of dead fish this afternoon. Shirtless, painted blue, and lying motionless on fishing nets, demonstrators from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), along with campaigner Hayden Hamilton (in plain clothes), were protesting fishing. “More fish are killed for food every year than any other animal,” Hamilton said. She stressed that fish are intelligent and can feel pain.  The Spokane protest is the second of four PETA protests building up to National Fish Amnesty Day on Saturday/Lydia Zuraw, Inlander.

Question: Is there any cause you'd consider worthy enough to show a little skin publicly in protest?
