FEMEN have decided to show off in Europe too. In Rome they participated in a protest action against Silvio Berlusconi. They demanded his immediate resignation and compared him with president Yanukovich. The most evident similarity between the two politicians, according to the activists, is the fact that they both fail reforms, do not observe the law, are corrupt and connected to mafia.
Another protest action took place in Vatican. Two participants had been detained by the police before the topless action began.
In this way they demonstrated against the propaganda of church which imposes the medieval conception about the woman’ mission on the world, which includes the abortion ban, censure of contraception, and interference in the appearance of women.
The demonstration raised some panic in Vatican police, which dispersed the journalists and arrested those who kept photographing.
The activists were detained and spent about 4 hours in a police department. Under pressure from media, Vatican police did not deport the girls to Ukraine and let them stay in Vatican.
