DAVOS, Switzerland (AP) -- Three topless Ukrainian protesters were detained Saturday while trying to break into an invitation-only gathering of international CEOs and political leaders to call attention to the needs of the world's poor. Separately, demonstrators from the Occupy movement marched to the edge of the gathering.
After a complicated journey to reach the heavily guarded Swiss resort town of Davos, the Ukrainians arrived at the entrance to the complex where the World Economic Forum takes place every year.
With temperatures around freezing in the snow-filled town, they took off their tops and tried to climb a fence before being detained. "Crisis! Made in Davos," read one message painted across a protester's torso, while others held banners that said "Poor, because of you" and "Gangsters party in Davos."

I’m sorry, what was she saying? Her boobs were drowning her out.
A crisis of “bazzumba” proportions.
I’m gonna get you for that one!
Davos has always been joked about, in what all goes on there—it was on Imus In The Morning on FoxBusiness Channel this week—he did a video interview with a financial person attending the summit, and said there would be plenty of prostitutes and cocaine. She did not respond to the drugs, but did say: Where are the prostitutes?[joke]
I knew this would be Femen before I even clicked the link.
With temperatures around freezing in the snow-filled town, they took off their tops.....
You'll put your eye out kid!
..to call attention to the needs of the world’s poor.”
Soo...they’re donating their bras to the poor?
Serious Side: Forum founder Klaus Schwab offered to meet the activists on Saturday.
Protester David Roth says the group is mulling whether to accept the offer.
Mulling?????..they have to mull over whether they want a discussion or meeting???
Unorganized just like #OWS. They would rather have protest images shown world wide with officials arresting them rather than a civilized sit down meeting.
Professional and hired protesters; not thinkers. Protesters are just following orders, their job is to only protest. Cocaine is free.
There’s snow in that picture?
Well at least she shaves under her arms.
I’d like to meet with the protestor in the pic too. I’m sure she would intelligently bring me abreast of the situation and we could milk out a solution that would make complete udder sense. If not, I’m sure the conversation would be titillating. Of course I’ll have to remember my manners and not act like a boob. And I’d wear warm clothes because it seems a bit nipplely there.
This is still October, isn't it?
Yea. It would be easier to see if those people would just get out of the way.
Perhaps we could encourage the Occupy clowns to emulate this tactic? Nah, eye pollution is probably illegal.
She could have been more creative and dotted her I’s naturally.
I miss Davos so much. We used to spend many weekends there skiing off the Parsenn. It was a quiet swiss town. It’s only wild when these summit meetings are there.
You just know that polizei behind those shades is eyes-right.
As far as the protesters go, I’m afraid their message is getting lost in their medium.
Perhaps you could share a "mulled wine" with the protester as well, while she mulls over whether she and her fellow protesters should agree to a sit down to a meeting with Davos leaders.
Best I got!.. considering you used up all the other playful-descriptive words.
[lol]..you elite snob you..
Its only wild when these summit meetings are there.
Give us details!!!
I’d like to invite them to protest in my town. I wouldn’t mind if they decided to occupy the park. It’s sunnier if Florida, and they could use a tan.
I’m surprised only three were detained. I would have detained a lot more of them for extensive questioning.
We, the jury find them NOT GUILTY!
On second thought think I can see the point.
I would say tiny tt is indeed a crisis. If she is so poor because of You — You ought throw a gunny sack over her—
something about the feel of burlap ought make them buds grow.Or was there naughty pics I didn’t see?
adds a whole new meaning to the bumper sticker my kid has on their car— the one says “feel my Boobies”
No elite! Lol. I used to live in Switzerland. And the snow was notoriously scant when I lived there, so only the really high peaks like Davos had good snow. It really was just a ski town whenever I went. Never been to the take over the world summits.
I’d listen to what she had to say, for hours if necessary.
I would think the detainees would always be an even number.
Just look at all 6 of them.
