Femen haben während einer Fotosession mit dem Europacup blankgezogen und versuchten, den Pokal zu entführen, um gegen Sex-Tourismus während der Fußball EM zu protestieren. Bilder gibt’s auf Google Plus, hier ihr Livejournal-Blog, Snip von Reuters: Topless Ukraine activist grabs Euro soccer cup:

A Ukrainian women’s rights activist stripped to the waist and seized the Euro-2012 soccer trophy while it was on public display in Kiev on Saturday in a protest against the forthcoming month-long championship. The young woman, 23-year-old Yulia Kovpachik, is a member of the Kiev-based Femen women’s rights group which believes the Euro-2012 soccer tournament being played in Ukraine next month will encourage sex tourism.

Ich hab’ ja immer meine Zweifel an der Wirksamkeit von Femens Aktionen, aber spOn hat einen langen und ziemlich ausführlichen Artikel inklusive Interview mit Oksana Shachko, die grade wegen “Hooliganism” angeklagt ist, und Anna Hutsol, der 27jährigen Anführerin der New School Feminismus-Protester und die Blankzieherei hat mehr Substanz, als es zunächst den Anschein hat:

The creators of the movement are Oksana, Anna Hutsol and Sasha Shevchenko. At first, they lived in Khmelnytskyi, a city with 300,000 inhabitants and two nuclear reactors.

There were hardly any jobs to be had, and the men drank. The girls, for their part, spent long evenings discussing philosophy, Marxism and the situation of women in post-Soviet society. They decided that instead of getting married, they would bring about change.

There were only three of them at first, but now the movement, whose ranks include students, journalists and economists, has spread throughout Ukraine and includes more than 300 women. Calling themselves “Femen,” they have started a movement that has also caught hold among women in Tunisia and the United States. It’s a movement that even encourages experienced women’s rights activists to undress.
