Public nudity / marches Will you campaign for the government to clarify the meaning of offensive behaviour under the Crimes Act in order to prevent parades involving nudity and/or offensive behaviour to families? e.g. Boobs on Bikes, beach nudity bylaws

I oppose public parades involving nudity/and or offensive behaviour.

Len Brown

Council does not enforce what is or is not offensive behaviour, and therefore it’s not exactly a council matter. I note the law can restrict people from acting in an “offensive or disorderly manner”, which ought to deal with the matter. However, I am loath to try to intervene as it would just draw more attention to the parade, which is probably what the organisers want.

John Minto

I think mutual tolerance and respect is required with respect to nude bathing etc. I have previously protested against the boobs on bikes parades which I find offensive but I don’t think banning such parades is the answer.

John Palino

I do believe it should be clarified.
