Imagine how cold this must have been. Three topless Ukrainian protesters were arrested Saturday at the World Economic Forum in Davos trying to break into an invitation-only gathering of international CEOs and political leaders in an effort to draw attention toward the world’s poor. They carried signs that read “Crisis! Made in Davos!” and “Poor, because of you” and “Gangster's Party in Davos.” They are part of a popular Ukrainian protest group called Femen that frequently stages half-naked protests to draw attention to the needy. A group of about 40 Occupy protesters held a separate protest on Saturday, gathering in front of the town hall and shouting, “If voting would change anything, it would be illegal” and “Don’t let them decide for you, Occupy WEF.”
