Members of the Pirate Party in Germany recently organized a unique flash mob: people who were willing to strip down to their underwear to illustrate just how much they disagree with advanced imaging technology and its intrusive full-body scans.
The activists wrote messages like "Something to hide?" and "Be a good citizen - Drop your pants" on their skin. One woman jokingly labeled the parts of her body with something to hide: a diaper, a prosthetic leg, a nipple piercing.
This protest is proof that the furor about full-body scanners is not only growing in the United States -- it's becoming a worldwide phenomenon.
