Women in Almaty, Kazakhstan, have taken to the streets to fight a ban on lacy underwear in what they’re calling a “Panties for the President” protest. The ban actually goes back to 2012, when the Eurasian Union put a ban on the production and sale of synthetic lace panties, deeming them a health hazard.

And they’re willing to go as far as getting hauled off to jail to prove their love for lacy underthings. Seven women were allegedly detained and fined during a protest there on Sunday. (They were later released and ordered to pay a fine for disorderly conduct.)
