Extinction Rebellion activists have stripped almost bare as they took to the streets in Melbourne for their sixth day of protesting. 

Climate change activists marched down Exhibition St in Melbourne as part of a ‘Nudie Parade’ on Saturday. 

‘Feeling vulnerable about the Climate and Ecological Emergency? Us too,’ the group wrote on a Facebook event prior to the march.

‘So we are going to put it all on display Saturday 12th October. Meeting at Carlton Gardens at 10am, get noodie down to the knickers.

‘We will paint our bodies with messages and logos, then march through the streets and get people talking.’
