- FEMEN, olympics
As you know, we’ve been involved in some protests against the International Olympics Committee’s violation of its principles of gender equality and neutrality with regards Islamic states, veiling and inequality. On 25 July, One Law for All co-organised an event on this at which activist Sundas Hoorain spoke. Here is her speech.
Tomorrow, FEMEN is organising another related event, which is demanding that the International Olympics Committee condemn violence against women via Islamist states. Femen demands that those states that apply Sharia law be shut out of the Olympic games, because of the inhumanity of Sharia laws, which are in total contradiction with Olympic principles.
With the support of the IOC, these Islamist governments are using their participation of women in the Olympic games to hide thousands of victims and dead.
FEMEN’s action will take place tomorrow at 11am. The meeting point for the media is 10.45am in front of the London House, near Tower Bridge.
Join FEMEN if you can tomorrow. We have to do all we can whilst attention is on the Olympics to show our opposition to Islamism and our support of women’s rights and equality.
