Topless FEMEN-ista With Cancer Stands Up to “Medical Mafia”

Ukrainian protestors FEMEN bring on the guilt trip to the gov’s wasteful public budgets and underfunding of oncology centers. Activist Alina with Stage II lymphoma stood topless outside a hospital with sign “I’m dying and you’re stealing.” NSFW

FEMEN write that 1 out of 50 Ukrainians has cancer due to the after-affects of the Chernobyl disaster and instead of funding cancer treatment, money is splurged on corporate bonuses and frivolous entertainment. Hence another sign, “Epidemic of moral cancer.” They also provide Alina’s bank account info, if you want to pay for her medical expenses.
