SAN FRANSISCO, CA (KGO) - There was plenty of transparency at Tuesday's San Francisco city council meeting. But not by the government.

A group of protesters in the audience took off their clothes. Three men and four women disrobed after the council passed a ban on public nudity. Deputies tried to move quickly to cover the protesters and kick them out.

In case you're wondering, there's already a rule requiring clothes at City Hall. As for the new public ban, it takes effect in February, unless a federal judge sides with nudists who say the ban violates their civil rights. The hearing is scheduled for next month.

There will still be permitted events, like parades and festivals, for those who want to bare all, but that doesn't satisfy the protesters.
