Three Femen women are held in Tunisia after baring breasts
Wednesday 29 May 2013
Three topless European women were arrested for protesting outside the Palace of Justice in Tunis against the arrest of one of their fellow activists.
The two French woman and one German are members of the protest group Femen. Slogans such as “breasts feed revolution” were daubed across their naked chests. The women were demonstrating against the arrest of Amina Tyler, a Tunisian Femen activist who is due to stand trial today for illegal possessing pepper spray, for which she could be jailed for six months.
Ms Tyler caused controversy in March when she posed topless with the message “f*** your morals” on her chest and posted the photo on a Tunisian Femen Facebook page. Many Muslims in the relatively liberal Arab-speaking country were scandalised by the act.
