The gals of Femen are at it again. Remember them? The Ukrainian topless hotties protesting at Davos?
Well, they are back – and this time, it is personal…or something like that.
Russia Today has this:
The Ukrainian feminist group Femen have organized a topless hockey game near IIHF headquarters in Switzerland to protest at a decision to hold the 2014 World Championship in Belarus which they say does not uphold democracy and human rights.
The protest took place near the main office of the International Ice Hockey Federation in Zurich. Braving a severe frost, the protesters started a hockey game in the street wearing unbuttoned coats with nothing on underneath. Their demands, spelt out on banners, read: “Do not encourage dictatorship!” “Lukashenko, let’s play in Hague!” and “Slaves can’t play hockey!”
The feminists also issued a statement calling on sports officials “not to give rejuvenating injections to the rotten and dying body of Lukashenko’s regime.” They said that “The dictatorship is ruling Belarus by suppressing its own Constitution and fundamental human rights, suppressing all dissident attempts with torture and blood.”
Personally, I stand erect in saluting these brave (and topless) heroines, stiff in my resolve to help them reach the pinnacle of protest, an angry climax if you will…
Forget the pictures, that line alone can, and should be, used against me if I ever run for office.
Nothing screams “Liberty!” quite like a hot game of topless street hockey.
