The trial of three European feminists charged with public indecency after demonstrating topless in front of Tunisia’s Palace of Justice began in Tunis today.
The activists – two French women and one German – are members of the Ukrainian feminist group Femen.
They appeared topless on 29 May, demanding the release of a Tunisian member of the group, Amina Sboui, who was arrested after protesting that month. They have been charged with public indecency and being a threat to public order. Outside the court, dozens protested against them.
