Good job, you got it wrong. Half-naked, i.e. topless, women were protesting according to 20 Minuten this morning. The picture seems to confirm that.

If you're going to hire people to translate journalist's work, you could at least get it right...

Re: Naked female protesters stop traffic in Zurich

Is that really the right way to protest feminist issues? Most blokes would probably have sat through the 15 mins traffic chaos thinking "look at the t*ts on her!"

Epic fail.

Though I'd much rather watch a young muscled men topless protest, I think that would probably not hit the feminist agenda either... I would quite enjoy coming to work late though...

Re: Naked female protesters stop traffic in Zurich

Re: Naked female protesters stop traffic in Zurich

It's the same group that staged the protest at the Vatican: http://www.kyivpost.com/news/nation/detail/116406/

It's called FEMEN ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FEMEN ); for those of you who understand Italian, there was a reportage on their group on the Italian TV show "Le Iene" just a few weeks ago: http://www.video.mediaset.it/video/i...e-ucraine.html

Re: Naked female protesters stop traffic in Zurich

I know this is a terribly overused cliché, but I feel that it is appropriate to rehash it here:

"Bombing for peace is like showing your nipples for women's emancipation"

I really can't see how these Ukrainian gals are going to help a single abused street girl with their bare breasted approach. A bunch of guys taking shots with their smart phones and the press coverage isn't going to dissuade some client from paying CHF 50 for oral sex or the full works from a prostitute is it?

Re: Naked female protesters stop traffic in Zurich

Ok, I'll break it down to you guys...

The reason of The Local's poor journalism is simply to make sure people get hooked on the trash/gossip kind of new from Google research to click on the link and bring them on the forum and/or The Local's website.

Everytime someone contribue to those ''thread'', they keep the thread popping up in the research engine.

Did you realised how many of those headlines we now have everyday? Better to stop answering them me think...
