A handful of anti-circumcision protesters with California-based nonprofit Bloodstained Men and their Friends spent five hours waving signs and speaking to people at the corner of Montana and Custer avenues in Helena Friday.
Press Spokesman Harry Guiremand called circumcision of male children "unnecessary surgery."
"It's traumatic and painful," Guiremand said.
He and a half-dozen other protesters wore all white clothing with red stains around their groins.
"This is expressing the harm done to us," Guiremand said of the clothing.
Bloodstained Men and Their Friends is going on a Mountain West tour.
The group might be back in Helena, but not before two years have passed, Guiremand said.
