An artist has staged a naked protest in Cologne, following the shocking sex attacks in the city over New Year’s Eve.

On the night hundreds of women were mugged or sexually assaulted and two raped near Cologne’s main station.

In response to these brutal assaults, Swiss artist Milo Moire is standing in front of the city’s cathedral without any clothes on.

She held a placard saying: “Respect us! We are not fair game even when naked.”

Chatting about the peaceful protest afterwards, she said: “What happened on New Year’s Eve… I can’t understand. Why didn’t the police react?
Women don’t feel safe at the moment.”

When asked about the attackers, she added: “It’s not important where they are from.”

Police were in the area at the time of her protest, but chose not to interrupt Moire’s stunt. However, they did stop several young men and asked them to move away from the cathedral vicinity.

This comes after police chief Wolfgang Albers, 60, was removed from his post following more than 100 women filing criminal complaints on New Year’s Eve.

German chancellor Angela Merkel is now calling for stricter laws regulating asylum seekers after police described the majority of attackers as predominantly Arab or North African.
