Betsy Swoon names Marni Ugar and her band of vegan protesters our Boob of the Week for getting shocked and whiny after the chef at Antler Kitchen & Bar responded to them by carving and eating meat at a table by the restaurant's window.

It's the annual Running of the Bulls in Pamplona, Spain- a week long event that attracts a number of tourists... and a plethora of activists. This year, the animal rights activists went nearly naked, donning underwear and bull horns and red powder meant to signify the bloodshed. Protesters show up every year, protesting what they call cruelty towards the animals. However, so far the demonstrations haven't done much- because supporters of the annual run say it's an important tradition, and an even more important boon for the city's tourism industry.
How do you feel about the annual event? Let us know in the comments!
A naked flash mob recently went down in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The demonstration was organized by a group of feminist badasses known as Fuerza Artística de Choque Comunicativo (F.A.C.C), meaning “artistic force of communicative shock" to protest violence against women.
The demonstration was carried out in front of the parliament, the presidential palace, Casa Rosada, and Argentina’s highest court.
120 protesters in total slowly removed their clothes and collapsed on the ground to form a pile of bodies while one woman on a loudspeaker spoke about the issues of sexism and violence against women. Once a crowd started gathering and taking pictures, the naked women stood up and walked towards the people watching, and the protest ended when the women let out a collective scream.
As a protest, this is incredibly effective- and really moving.
