Euro will increase sex tourism: Protesters

sports Updated: Dec 03, 2011 23:19 IST

Members of the radical feminist group, Femen, on Friday bared their breasts in Kiev to protest sex tourism, just ahead of the draw in the city for the Euro 2012 football championships. The women were detained and taken to a police station after they lay on the pavement outside the Olimpiisky stadium with open legs and strategically placed footballs, holding up banners saying "UEFA attacked our gates,” the group said.

“Femen demands UEFA starts an education campaign for fans about the unacceptability of sex tourism and financing the sex industry,” the group states. It has warned the football championships will lead to an increase in sex tourism in Ukraine.
