First topless Femen protest in Canada targets Tunisian politician

(Warning: story about topless protesters contains images of topless protesters.)

Moments after I wrote a blog post about a Femen demonstration in Germany, the group held its first topless action in Canada.

Xenia Chernyshova is reportedly the woman in the video above.

As former Tunisian prime minister Jamadi Djebali was speaking in Montreal, she stormed onto the stage and ripped off her top.

The slogan "Femen everywhere" was written across Chernyshova's chest as she screamed at Djebali.

She demanded that the Tunisian, who's secretary general of an Islamist party called Ennahda, free Femen protester Amina Tyler, who is being held in Tunisia.

In the past, Djebali has called for the creation of the sixth caliphate, which was widely seen as an endorsement of Sharia law.

This has set him apart from other party leaders who've tried to present a more moderate face to the world. 

Femen is an antipatriarchal and anticlerical feminist group that was created in Ukraine in 2010.

Members decided to go topless to generate more media coverage for the issues that concern them.

The mission of the "FEMEN" movement is to create the most favourable conditions for the young women to join up into a social group with the general idea of the mutual support and social responsibility, helping to reveal the talents of each member of the movement.
