French Locals to Counter Burkini Protest with Nude Swimming

Following an announcement by a group to hold a second “burkini” protest at a pool in the French city of Grenoble, counter-protesters have called on locals to swim in the pool wearing nothing at all.

Last Sunday, a group of around a dozen women belonging to the Alliance Citoyenne (Citizens’ Alliance) protested at a pool that had banned the wearing of the Islamic sharia-compliant swimwear, with police being called soon after the group were told the burkini was against the rules of the pool. 

According to areport from France Bleu, the group has announced another protest to take place on Sunday, but this time others on social media have suggested bathers take off all of their clothes and bathe naked in counter-protest.

“Next Sunday, we invite all the citizens attached to the values ​​of the Republic to get naked in front of the commandos in burkinis! They want to extinguish the enlightenment: together, let’s drop the bathrobes! Long live secularism uninhibited!” the counter-protesters wrote. 

Grenoble’s local government official for sport Sadok Bouzaïene said he did not want to contribute to the “buzz” surrounding the issue saying that the women “have broken the swimming pool rules that exist for reasons of hygiene and safety.
