In Ukrainian Lvov FEMEN keeps on opposing the ‘greatest corruption scheme of the century’, Euro-2012 in Ukraine. By cracking dishes, activists wanted to show the fragility of the hopes that people have.
New stadiums built in haste, are the most expensive in their class and, moreover, they are already out-of-date. FEMEN warns about consequences of such policy, which may be the collapse of the Ukrainian economy; a flow of tourists will result in a prostitution boom, increase of sex-tourism and spreading of tuberculosis and AIDS. FEMEN does not guarantee safety of the football fans, in case relevant educative work is not done.
Both activists were roughly detained by police officers and brought to the nearest police station.
A similar action took place on October, 8th at the opening ceremony of the main football stadium in Kiev, when three FEMEN activists remonstrated against Euro-2012, claiming that it would cause corruption, economical losses, prostitution, sex-tourism and so on.
In Paris, FEMEN activists attempted to sexually attack the residence of Dominique Strauss-Kahn with dusters, buckets and other cleaning substances and tools. Their slogan was: With the help of big money and power, you can avoid punishment, but you will never wash the disgrace off! FEMEN joins French feminists in their appeal for political isolation of Dominique Strauss-Kahn and thorough and unprejudiced investigation of all cases he is involved in, and believes that when justice is powerless, women have to unite to protect themselves. Strauss-Kahn, Clinton and Berlusconi are symbols of the impunity of high-ranking officials.
During the action, Strauss-Kahn called the police, which unlike at happened in Ukraine, did not cuff the activists, but let them go.
