Pope targeted by explicit protest on St Peter's Square

A Femen activist is arrested for an explicit protest at St. Peter's Square in the Vatican, on November 14, 2013Femen, the women’s rights group known for topless protests, took their act to a new level of provocation on Friday with an explicitly sexually suggestive demonstration in front of the Vatican. In what they described as a protest over Pope Francis’s upcoming visit to the European Parliament, three members of the group appeared on St Peter’s square wearing only leather mini-skirts and flower garlands in their hair. According to the group, the protest was organised because they regard the Pope’s November 25 visit to the European Parliament as an attack on secular principles. “Pope is not a politician,” one of the three women had emblazoned across her exposed breasts.
