Well almost. New film showing at Venice film festival reveals that Femen was originated and still run by VICTOR SVYATSKI. Cross between Hugh Hefner and the bloke who thought up BONEY M. RAH RAH RASPUTIN….yet another manipulating male scumbag

…”These girls are weak” he says in the film.
…“They don’t have the strength of character. They don’t even have the desire to be strong. Instead, they show submissiveness, spinelessness, lack of punctuality, and many other factors which prevent them from becoming political activists. These are qualities which it was essential to teach them.”
…when he is asked directly whether he started Femen “to get girls”, he replies: “Perhaps yes, somewhere in my deep subconscious.”
One of the Femen campaigners talks of the relationship between the women and the movement’s founder as being akin to “Stockholm syndrome”…“We are psychologically dependent on him and even if we know and understand that we could do this by ourselves without his help, it’s psychological dependence,” she says.
Come on-wise up FFS. The Independent is owned by a Russian Banker! Alexander Lebedev. He’s a Banking Plutocrat and if your soft enough to fall for this propaganda you may as well start using anything from Murdochs News Corp as a source. That article convieniently fails to name a specific Female individual with its spurious quote.
21st activism ladies and gents in all it’s bogus glory. That just leaves the child porn loving phonies of Anonymous to rid ourselves of now.
Now we know why ‘Femen’ never challenge militarism, austerity, benefit cuts, talk about class,etc.That’s left to Selma James and the Global Women’s Strike, who are subsequently ignored by the media, and pilloried by state feminists.
Nothing like ‘respectable dissent’ for a fast track career. Just ask Owen Jones, et al.
Any proof or evidence or links to substaniate these claims?
Hmmm, so what is this geezer supposedly getting out of his being the ‘eminence grise’ of Femen then? -’Girls’, according to the article, and this film, which will quickly be forgotten no doubt- I could see the point if this were some Ciccolina-inspired porn collective marketing a new spunk-film, but how does all of this fit with the recent fit-up by the Ukrainian cops planting handguns, grenades and drugs?
Eastern european protest does seem to be very avant-garde, esoteric and abstract to say the least, when you think of Pussy Riot and Voina (“Fuck for the heir Puppy Bear”)- out of necessity rather than choice I think…
Seems to be the usual criticism that gets aimed, first up there was Voina whose ‘performance art’ was criticised as basically being ‘men degrading women to send a message to other men’, this criticism was then levelled at Pussy Riot due to one of their number being a former Voina member (with some commenters even going so far as to attribute Voina activities and affiliations to Pussy Riot). Now FEMEN appears to be getting similar flack. Seems to work to discredit such groups.
Although with saying that I’m not really in a position to dispute whether or not the claims are truth, wouldn’t be the first time a political movement had devolved into a knocking shop for a power-hungry patriarch.
Well as radical political svengalis go you’ve got Victor Svyatski (Femen apparently) and Dan Mathews (PETA) on one side who’ve persuaded attractive young women that revolution is primarily about getting them to expose their breasts, bums and thighs; whilst on the other hand you’ve got Matt O’Connor (fathers 4 justice), Tommy Robinson (EDL) and Ian Bone (Class War) who managed to persuade middle-aged, out of shape men that revolution is primarily about them exposing their beer guts …. hmmm …. I wonder …..
