While I generally avoid writing on the weekends, I have caught a lot of crap for avoiding FEMEN’s Davos protest yesterday. It is truly amazing how many American media sources have been reporting on this. 

In short, FEMEN went to Davos, Switzerland to protest the World Economic Forum. In classic FEMEN style, they got undressed and began to make some serious noise. It didn’t take long before they decided to scale the fence enclosing the Forum, after which they were quickly arrested. The same three girls that went through hell in Belarus were at the protest in Davos: Inna Shevchenko, Aleksandr Shevchenko and Oksana Shachko. 

They were joined at Davos by numerous other protest groups including Anonymous. However, nobody left such an impact or made quite as much noise as our beautiful FEMEN protesters. If they weren’t beautiful, and topless, I highly doubt they would have been allowed to go as far as they did. 

The core protest was around the Davos Conspiracy. The fact that such a small group of people make the decisions for the rest of the world without consultation or even care bothers all the protesters. FEMEN made it known by writing slogans on their breasts and holding up signs to echo these same slogans. As you can see by the pictures, the slogans are all in English, my favorite of which is “Gangster Party”. I think it is clear that the gangsters that run Davos in fact run most of the world. These aren’t the 1% that the Occupy movement is opposed to, but rather the .0001% of that 1%. When such a small group of people control the majority of the world, it is the people’s duty to stand up to them and put them in their place.

Here are the videos that are currently posted on FEMEN’s blog, as well as all the photos on the blog. There are plenty more photos and videos on Facebook, so add FEMEN to your ‘liked’ list and follow them there as well.
