24 February 2013. You Can’t Make Up Shit Like This… Femen Activists Go Topless to Protest Berlusconi at Italian Polling Station

00 FEMEN protest Milano Italy. 24.02.13

______________________________

On Sunday, RAI News reported that activists of the women’s rights group FEMEN went topless at a polling station in Milano when ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi arrived to vote in the Italian general election. Three activists of the Ukrainian feminist group lunged at Berlusconi as he arrived at the polling station. The women held a topless protest, wearing only jeans, under the slogan “Basta Berlusconi” (Enough of Berlusconi). Two Ukrainian and one French woman participated in the protest, AGI reported. Police quickly arrested the activists; they struggled to put jackets and handcuffs on the women. The Italian parliamentary elections, which many see as crucial for the country’s effort to address its economic problems, kicked off on Sunday. Recent estimates gave a lead to Pier Luigi Bersani‘s centre-left alliance, thought to be a few points ahead of the centre-right bloc led by three-time premier Berlusconi. The Ukrainian radical feminist movement FEMEN began in 2008; it devotes itself mainly to protests on women’s issues. Later, the group made headlines for pro-democracy and anti-corruption protests in Russia, the Ukraine, and London.

Editor’s Note:

Why do we give such jerks publicity? Is humanity so hungry for “T & A?” In fact, the FEMEN women cheapen their protests with their topless antics. The cops should arrest such sorts and journalists shouldn’t mention it. It’s cheap all the way ‘round, and I’m not alone in thinking that. NO… I’m NOT a censorious blue-nosedEvangelical” right-wing busy-body… I’m a “live n’ let live” leftist Orthodox Christian who doesn’t go out looking for witches to burn (unlike the Monomakhos set and the HOOMies). There are standards of decency, and (c’mon) we all know them. That’s the way it is…
