Belgium FEMEN Leaves The International Movement

“We are announcing the closure of the branch FEMEN Belgium. We took this decision unanimously because of different views upon the internal organization of the international movement FEMEN. We have no regrets, we conducted our actions with sincerity. We will continue the fight, there is no question about that, but we will do it in a different way. Vive la Révolution !”


Femen Protests in Moscow by Sergey Kukota on FlickR CC-license-BY-2.0

This is the message the Belgian Femen group left on their facebook page on September 9th in English and French, and on the 10th in Flemish. For now the reasons of these “different views” seem unclear. What will be the next episode in the Femen quest to get a unified voice accross the globe?
