Four topless activists from a women's rights group were arrested today after they carried out a protest in central London. Police were called to City Hall to deal with the protesters, who had accused the Olympics' governing body of having supported 'bloody' Islamist regimes. Pictures showed officers holding women on the ground and covering their chests.

It said: 'Femen requires the states that apply the laws of sharia be shut out of the Olympic games, because of the inhumanity of these laws, which are in total contradiction with Olympic principles that are peace and philanthropy. 'Femen accuses these states of simulating democratic changes regarding the position of women. 'With the support of the IOC, these Islamist governments use the participation of women in the Olympic games to hide thousands of victims and dead. 'If the IOC keeps flirting with radical Islam, new Olympic disciplines, such as stoning or speed raping will be added to the competition.'

Feeling funny, and a bit dizzy.

Apparently I agree with Feminists.

Dizzy again.

Too bad the Daily Mail has covered up the “naughty bits” on their site—but from what I can see: NOT GUILTY!

At least they are doing it for a good reason...Islamic sharia law HATES women! That’s the truth.

I’ll stand by them (the closer the better)

Sounds more like a freedom fighter than a Feminist.

Since when do “Feminists” give a crap about anything other than hating Conservatives and killing nascent life?

She appears to be the cute one of the four, as you can see in the video on The Sun’s website.

How convenient. The Ukrainians chose the site of their “protest” where the consequences will not be very severe.

At least one feminist group has it right.

As this protest is about The Religion of Peace through Beheading, this can't help but be brought to mind:

The FEMEN movement is definitely worth a second look....

Yep, in more ways than one. I looked around and it appears they are non violent, have a sense of humor, address some very serious issues, and it appears they DO NOT have abortion and birth control at the top center of their agenda.

Ukrainian “feminists” might define themselves very differently that ours do.

One of Femen's goals is "To develop leadership, intellectual and moral qualities of the young women in Ukraine."

They are also against sex tourism and the sex trade in the Ukraine. In Eastern Europe that can get you killed easily.

One of their protests was to expose how the Ukraine authorities were unable to deal with terrorists placing bombs on public transit.

Interesting.

My kind of femmes. I did something like that, all by myself at the Berlin Wall in December of 1988. I handed my (very surprised) brother the camera and said, “when I tell you, take a picture.” Then I stripped from the waist up. And gave the finger to the whole thing. The guards in the towers went beserk, but we were gone before they could do anything.

How come most of our feminists are double dirty butt-crack ugly?

I honestly believe that if a 13-year-old boy read what you wrote, he would have giggled.

No need to see them, as someone pointed out, they "wore" black electrical tape across the best parts.

5th picture down at the news source has caption saying "a woman writhes on her back as police break up a demonstration". Go do a closeup look at "her" face, hairy as heck. Those English women!

Page 3 in The Sun is always worth visiting.

And that's okay - sort of, because it is a woman, she just made up the stubbled hair look on her face to look like a muslim man. Me, at my age I've given up trying to hit anything but thirty years ago... sigh...
