FEMEN banned by Face Book..again
The FEMEN website reports its' Face Book page has been deleted by the company for the second time and without warning. Last time this happened FEMEN were accused of "promoting pornography" which certainly couldn't be further from the truth.
Their actions are designed to "reclaim" women's bodies through protest.
Whilst I don't always agree with their actions, one has to admire their bravery particularly in the Muslim world where their activists are at severe risk of harsh penalties from the authorities.
The photograph from their website says it all really.
Nudity (in this case semi-nudity) is not pornographic in itself. FEMEN describe such an attitude as near to "sharia".
I think they have a point.
More to the point censorship is wrong and I'm posting this to my Face Book page in protest!
