LONDON – Vivienne Westwood (search) has launched a line of T-shirts to take a stand against proposed anti-terror legislation.
"I am not a terrorist. Please don't arrest me," says one T-shirt, which Westwood designed to raise funds for Liberty, one of Britain's largest civil rights organizations.
Another design says: "Liberty throw away the key."
The campaign opposes the government's proposal to allow terrorist suspects to be detained for up to three months without being charged, instead of the present 14 days.
"This T-shirt is really to ask the British people to use their imagination," the fashion designer told reporters Wednesday.
"How would they feel if someone near them who was innocent was arrested?"
Westwood, who created the punk look for the Sex Pistols and is a favorite designer of rocker Gwen Stefani, has said "there's always a polemic in my clothes."
The shirts, priced at $88 for adults and $35 for infants, will be available starting Thursday at Westwood's London store and on her Web site.
