Activist group FEMEN opens Turkey office

(ANSAmed) - ISTANBUL, OCTOBER 28 - Activist group FEMEN has
opened a Turkey branch, announcing the news via its social media
accounts accompanied by an image of a woman with a Turkish flag
painted on her bare breasts, as daily Hurriyet reports. "We
announce that FEMEN Turkey office is opened! Join Guntulu, and
fight for the democracy in your country," said the group on its
Twitter account last Friday. The group also released another
picture of the girl, named Guntulu, to protest against the
removal of hundreds of trees for a road construction passing
through the campus of Ankara's Middle East Technical University
(ODTU). FEMEN had previously held several protests in Turkey and
signaled earlier that its Turkey office would be opened.

Ukrainian FEMEN activists were taken into custody on March 1,
2012, as they attempted to stage their trademark topless
demonstration in Istanbul to draw attention to violence against
women. FEMEN is a Ukrainian protest group founded in 2008 and
based in Kyiv. The organization became internationally known for
organizing topless protests against sex tourists, international
marriage agencies, sexism and other social, national and
international ills. (ANSAmed).
