Despite the frigid February weather, a man and a woman plan to bare all for a protest on Nicollet Mall in downtown Minneapolis Monday, the Star Tribune reports.

Jenna Cameron, 24, and Derek Ritchison, 30, are members of the global activist group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). The pair will strip down and cuddle up in a bed for an anti-fur demonstration over the noon hour.

PETA told the newspaper it has a permit to block the sidewalk.

In November 2011, WCCO reported a nearly-naked PETA activist also shed most of her cloths to speak out against clothes made with animal products.
