Training FEMEN Spain to protest "MY PUSSY, MY RULES"
Training FEMEN Spain to protest
Free the Slaves!
FEMEN Netherlands campaign to “Free the Slaves” of prostitution.
This weekend was kicked off by celebrations of Saint Nicolas arrival with his Black Pete servants from Spain. According to tradition the holy man (white, old and wealthy) returns every year to reward the Dutch children for their behavior. Good children receive gifts and bad children are punished by Black Pete. Every year during the winter holiday season we are reminded of our colonial past, of slavery, a memory so painful that the white people rather ignore it. This bitter truth resurfaced in national discussion about Black Pete (blackface practice as 2nd place main character), that refers to a deeper problem of institutionalised racism.
By engaging in the blackface practice, white people sustain a racist caricature. White pleasure is more important than black pain. This attitude is legitimated by dehumanising “the other”, with arguments such as “oh, it’s just a… Negro” and “there comes the troublemaking Pete”. FEMEN wants to remind the Netherlands, that the problem reaches deeper. Slavery still exists! It’s being embraced as freedom and is financially exploited as part of the Dutch Culture. The red lights burn all year round as symbol of progressiveness, attracting men who can pay for sexual services. The crisis unleashed a price war that resulted in unhealthy competition in the sex industry, where foreign women are exploited in stead of living the better future as promised.
“Oh, they are just… women” from Eastern-Europe, Africa, Latin-America and Asia, a group that form “the other” for the Dutch public. Forced by financial circumstances to sell their body in a foreign country, without knowledge of the native language, confronted by men who say that foreign hookers “should be happy to work here” and if they don’t like it “fuck off to their own country”. Subsequently, the life of sex slaves is not paved with chocolate coins…
FEMEN demands rejection of modern colonialism that exploits foreign, financially instable women! Sextremists are warning, that we are coming through the chimney this year to honestly reward the sex industry for its slave practice.
HAPPY HOLIDAYS, WITHOUR SLAVERY!
MY PUSSY, MY RULES!
Today the big parade "for life" took place in Madrid organized by many Christian and conservative organizations. They have seen truncated their big event because of the attack of the Saint FEMEN sextremists.
The activists have disrupted the ride of the anti-abortion movement in the heart of the city, dressed as naked Virgins. With a slogan that made alredy history in the career of Spanish feminism "Abortion is sacred", FEMEN have grappled with the immense crowd moralist and oppressive that flooded the street Cedaceros.
"My body, my rules" or "Freedom for abortion" have been others of the slogans chosen by the sextremists for their confrontation with anti-choice army.
This big event organized with thousands euros for private companies, religious sects, the Church and conservative organizations and neo-fascists, has seen their dream reduced to rubble by FEMEN.
