Femen’s Topless Protesters Get Their Hands On Euro 2012 Trophy…Again

Transmission

Femen activists make their move with the Euro 2012 trophy on display in the Ukrainian city of Dnipropetrovsk on May 21.

Brash protesters from the famously bare-breasted Ukrainian feminist group Femen staged another assault on the Euro 2012 soccer championships that Ukraine is co-hosting along with Poland.

Femen has argued that the tournament will strengthen the foothold that prostitution has on Ukrainian economy and society and boost its sex-tourism trade.

The group has pledged a campaign of stunts targeting football's second-most-profitable tournament.

In the second storming of the cup within a week, activist Inna Shevchenko on May 21 duped officials into letting her onstage with the championship trophy on the Dnipropetrovsk leg of its whistle-stop tour to promote the tournament before dropping her top to reveal the words "F*ck Euro 2012." The topless 21-year-old also grabbed the trophy before being dragged off by security. Another activist -- reportedly a French journalist who supports the cause -- immediately followed suit.

Here's Femen's own video of the incident and the preparations:

The Euro 2012 has provided nothing but headaches so far for the government, with foreign leaders vowing to stay away unless jailed former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko -- Ukraine's best-known political prisoner (according to Amnesty International) -- receives better treatment.
