Porn Parade Will Confront School Students

Family First NZ is advising parents of school children in Palmerston North to be aware that there will be a public porn parade featuring topless porn stars happening during the time that children are travelling home from school on Friday.

“The Erotica Parade, also known as Boobs on Bikes, is scheduled to travel around the central city square at the same time as school children will be dismissed from schools, and in some cases travelling in cars or buses through the area where topless porn stars will be parading,” says Bob McCoskrie, National Director of Family First NZ.

“We would advise parents to do everything they can to avoid children being exposed to this parade, and if necessary, they should keep their children at home for the day.”

Family First is disappointed that the parade is even able to happen in such a public venue but points the finger squarely at the police for not enforcing the law consistently, judges who believe that topless porn parades and nudity are not offensive, and the lack of political willpower to act in the best interests of families and children.

“It is time that the rights of families to not be exposed to offensive and adult material are put before the rights of the pornography industry to promote themselves,” says Mr McCoskrie.

Family First NZ is calling on the politicians to amend the Summary Offences Act and the Crimes Act so that topless public parades and public displays of nudity are deemed offensive and indecent, and thereby illegal.
