Program of Festival

KIEV, UKRAINE - OCTOBER 11 : Tatiana Zacerkovna (22), pose for a photo in front of Soviet Era Sculpture of the workers and heroes. She is Topless FEMEN activist for a couple of months and an artist making a living by designing and painting clothes. Came from small town in Nikolayevsk Oblast 6 years ago.Her Costume: with a gun as a camera and slogan written on her back: No Pictures-No Democracy,  was used to protest arrest of 5 journalist in Georgia.  Tatiana:" In Georgia, 5 journalists were jailed, one was even the presidentÕs photographer. They were accused for spying for Russia, despite the fact there was no clear evidence of that. Many journalists approached us to help and we supported them because journalists protect us (as FEMEN), even from the police. They also help spread our ideas - thatÕs why we supported all this. The reaction of the Georgian embassy guard was predictable " October 11, 2011 in Kiev, Ukraine.
