Topless Protesters at Davos...



Now I don't know about you but I think that a woman protesting topless isn't fair to the hard working strippers out there! I'm just kidding, but lets take a reasonable look at this and what they are protesting about. I'll Sum up the USA TODAY article that wrote about the story. So...

Once upon a time in Davos Switzerland there were 3 topless protesters. These protesters were trying to break into an invitation only gathering for CEOs, CEOs that gathered to call attention to the world's poor.

As the ladies shed their tops the temperature began to drop. Near freezing was the day, but some could be heard saying hurray.

But all did not go well for the ladies. Although some men were distracted, others were outraged and began to arrest the women.

The women resisted, but there was only so much they could do.

But one thing is certain, we now know there was a protest in Davos....
Sadly, that sums up what happened in Davos. There were occupy protesters there as well, but the women took their thunder. One thing I took from this article was why they were gathering. It is a yearly event, and this year they wanted to focus on the poor.... does this mean, thanks to the different political movements going on, corporations are beginning to focus on corporate responsibility? I was not at the meeting, but I can only hope that is the case.
