FEMEN keeps spreading international! Thus, in Zurich FEMEN blocked the main pimp street of the city, Sihlquai Strasse, stopped cars and began to chant. Activists demonstrated against brothels and prostitution which took advantage of poor women making them prostitutes. FEMEN believes that prostitution is the only form of slavery left on the planet. This time a Swiss activist participated in the action and also a lot of members of the Radical-Liberal Party of Switzerland came to support FEMEN. No arrests were made.
‘A woman is not a commodity!’
FEMEN also celebrated the resignation of Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi in front of the Italian Embassy in Kiev, by pretending to be the winners of the Formula One World Championship. Activists sprayed
security guards and passers-by with expensive champagne and chanted. FEMEN wanted to share this victory with millions of Italians, as it was the result of increased pressure from both the citizens of Italy and FEMEN.
‘Berlo, ciao!’ and ‘Finish Berlusconi!’, shouted the activists sternly. The women’s movement demands that the resignation of Berlusconi should start mandatory trials, because it’s time for him to answer for the patriachal brutality of his government.
In New York, the American department of FEMEN held a topless demostration on Wall Street. They remonstrated against unjust treatment of the members of the movement Occupy Wall Street and demanded that the police let the protesters go back to Zuccotti Park. FEMEN is outraged by the cruel treatment of the female protesters who have been arrested and detained at police stations.
