Asheville Topless Rally Returns
The 4th Annual Go Topless Rally was held in Pritchard Park, and drew a smaller crowd than in years past. Organizers say they want to support a woman's right to be shirtless anywhere a man can. Something that's already legal in North Carolina.
They feel their message has been misunderstood, but not everyone agrees with how they're presenting themselves.
"It is not about me being out here without a top, as much as it is being out here and having the right to be without my top if I choose to, it's all about choice," says topless protester Ladonna Allison.
Daniel Bussey, who opposes the topless rally, says "I wanted to stay here with my friends, with my family, just to say that I don't support that, as a man I wanna respect a woman, I wanna look at her with dignity and decency because she is made in the image of God, just as everyone else is."
Asheville City Council members released a letter opposing the rally, calling it an embarrassment to the community, and suggesting people not attend.
