Topless Ukrainian Girls Play Street Hockey to Protest IIHF World Championships


February 5, 2012

There are many ways to protest things, but few involve taking clothes off.

In protest of the IIHF games being scheduled in Belarus for 2014, a Ukrainian feminist group who call themselves Femen recently went to IIHF headquarters in Switzerland and organized a game of street hockey, according to Yahoo's Puck Daddy. The twist? They played the game topless.

People are outraged with the IIHF for scheduling the world championships in Belarus because the country is accused of human rights violations under President Alexander Lukashenko. Many people have voiced their concern, including the Obama Administration. However, the Femen girls protested a little more creatively.

The girls reportedly braved the cold wearing unbuttoned jackets with nothing on underneath and, according to Russia Today, carried signs that said "Do not encourage dictatorship!" and "Slaves can't play hockey!"
