Femen protestors bare breasts against ex-premier

Demonstrators chant 'Enough Berlusconi!' at polling station

Femen protestors bare breasts against ex-premier

Rome, February 25 - One of the three members of the Ukrainian feminist group Femen who targeted ex-premier Silvio Berlusconi with a bare-chested protest said "we attacked Berlusconi because he is the most sexist politician there is in circulation". Femen leader Inna Shevchenko told the newspaper La Repubblica on Monday that "Berlusconi buys women as though they were a commodity". "And thanks to his media empire he transmits a degrading female image". The three protesters posing as AP journalists confronted Berlusconi as he voted in Italian parliamentary elections on Sunday. When Berlusconi entered the atrium of a school serving as a polling station in Milan, the Femen protesters unbelted their heavy winter coats to reveal their nude breasts and chanted "Basta Berlusconi" or "Enough Berlusconi!" Roughly a year ago, Femen activists staged a similar protest against Berlusconi's friend, Russian President Vladimir Putin, at a polling station in Moscow, and this month marked the pope's resignation striking church bells and chanting "Pope no more" in Notre Dame cathedral in Paris. Shevchenko said the police who stopped them were "brutal, violent". "I am seeing a doctor because I have an injury on the head," she explained.
