A Real-Life Lysistrata!

Turkish activist Birsel Lemke won a 2000 Right Livelihood Award for her efforts to protect her country from highly destructive cyanide-based gold mining.  In her acceptance speech, she told the story:

" May 1993 we organized a symbolic meeting of a Greek and Turkish ship at high seas with children, citizens and mayors ...With this it was intended to demonstrate that gold mining was not only a Turkish problem and to show the friendship and solidarity between the two peoples ... Village inhabitants ran unclothed in the demonstrations, bearing signs with the slogan, 'Before EUROGOLD strips us, we'll strip.' The women, who always were at the head of the demonstrations and campaigns, denied themselves to their husbands until the former had expelled the gold mining companies."
