(NZ) Students strip down for animal rights

Baring their bodies to stand up for the rights of creatures covered in fur may sound a bit bizarre, but that's exactly what more than 30 Rhodes students did on Monday evening.

While the temperature was below 20 degrees, the au naturel animal lovers streaked from the journalism department and down Prince Alfred Street to land up near the end of New Street in order to get people's attention.

The run, organised by student society Rhodes Organisation for Animal Rights (Roar), initiated an animal rights week programme which aims to raise awareness about animal cruelty.
