Topless FEMEN protesters create a splash at Euro 2012 soccer championships

Ukraine's band of bare-breasted feminist demonstrators have been out in force at the Euro 2012 soccer championships.

FEMEN activists recently staged a nude protest outside Warsaw's National Stadium.

Young women in the group remove their shirts to protest sex tourism, international marriage agencies, and other activities that they believe degrade young Ukrainian women.

In Warsaw, they used fire extinguishers to advance their claim that the soccer championships promote prostitution. Naturally, the protest attracted hordes of men with cameras.

The video below shows how these women spent two months preparing for the Euro 2012 championships.

As an aside, a Vancouver-based feminist group called FIRST, which advocates on behalf of sex workers, has argued that major sporting events like Euro 2012 do not promote the trafficking of women for sex. You can read more about that perspective here.

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.
