Thirty members of the Alpha Phi Omega fraternity staged a nude protest at the University of the Philippines in Quezon City to call for better government disaster response, given the poor showing after the recent devastating typhoon.

Protesters asked the government to implement a “mainstream disaster risk reduction” program. They also called on the public not to abuse nature.

The protest came more than a month after Super Typhoon Haiyan killed more than 6,000 people and caused catastrophic destruction in central Philippines.
