Police in Chile have arrested a stripper who was attempting to remove her clothes outside the presidential palace in the capital, Santiago.
Her arrest comes three days after she performed a series of striptease dances on the Santiago underground, the metro.
Monserrat Morilles told reporters that her performances were aimed at challenging the prudishness of Chilean society and that they would continue.
yes, yes of course there is video:
Chilean media has dubbed her “La Diosa del Metro” or the Metro Goddess.
Ms Morilles, 26, called her performances “happy minutes.”
“This is just a beginning. We are starting an idea here that will grow and be developed further,” she told Reuters news agency as she was being taken into custody.
“Chile is still a pretty timid country,” her manager, Gustavo Pradenas, said.
“People aren’t very extroverted and we want to take aim at that and make Chile a happier country.”
