FEMEN celebrated Women’s Day (March, 8th) by throwing another protest action in Istanbul. They wanted to attract public attention to the problem of violation of women’s rights in Turkey. Four activists were detained by police.
Another action was to support Oksana Makar, a 19-year-old woman who was lured into an apartment by three men, raped, strangled, raped again, and left near a fire to burn. The tragedy happened in the city of Mykolayiv, Ukraine. Oksana survived. Two of the men accused were released (they are sons of prominent wealthy members of the community). The activists demanded harsh punishment for the men and asked that people showed their support for Oksana through prayers and sending messages of love and money. Three of the FEMEN activists were arrested while two managed to escape.
