PARIS: FEMEN Activists stripped off their tops in the Paris Square in protest against the burqa and in defense of Muslim women’s rights.
FREE THOUGHT The protest was organized by Iranian human rights activist Mariam Namazi, a popular Lebanese actress Darina Al Jondy, well-known French feminist of Arabian origin Safia Lebdi. On the bodies of activists and posters were written slogans against Islamic sharia barbarism against girls and women in the Middle East.
FEMEN urged the Muslim world to stage a topless protest in support of their disenfranchised sisters, wrapped up in full veils, burnt with acid, beaten with whips, and honor killed by Muslim men on a regular basis. FEMEN demands world leaders protect the fundamental rights of women in the Middle East and South Asia as they protect themselves from terrorist threats.
