Wanted: A Few Good FeMEN

Human persons acting normally in the aid of non-human persons. A no-brainer. No hesitation or existential mental gymnastics or tweeting for advice...

Something took place on International Women's Day which got almost zero coverage: Actions by a group of women from Ukraine called FEMEN. That is the Topkapi Palace in background, in central Istanbul, Turkey. H2SO4 is sulfuric acid. They have just about all the social and environmental justice bases covered (see videos), while courageously uncloaking themselves! All Praises! Jai Maa!
This is a translation of their webpage, including videos.
This is the list of all their links, including Vimeo channel.
As a friend recently remarked, "10 million of them taking to the streets ought to do it". 
There's really no words or anything that I can add to all of the above.

I don't know if bombing Iran is on or off the table today, but, because of the insane rhetoric of late,  I'll leave you with some exquisite sounds from our Iranian and Indian brothers, Shujaat Husain Khan and Kayhan Kalhor....
