Free Pussy Riot
« on: May 03, 2012, 01:44:01 PM »
Looks like the spirit of punk rock is alive & kicking in Russia. Two young mothers are facing 7 years in jail for protesting about injustice.
FREE PUSSY RIOT!

If any one is interested in helping our Russian comrades, Amnesty International has drafted a letter. All you need to do is fill in your details.

Gets worse for Pussy Riot:

Three members of a feminist punk band arrested for singing a protest song in Moscow's main Orthodox church must remain in custody, a court ruled yesterday.

The trio, part of a collective called Pussy Riot, were told they would be kept in detention for a further six months, until at least 12 January. The case involving Maria Alyokhina, 24, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, 22, and Ekaterina Samutsevich, 29, has split Russian society. The women have been in prison since they were arrested in February for performing an impromptu rendition of a song "Blessed Virgin, Mother Mary, Drive Putin Out!".

...............a lawyer for one of the cathedral guards, who claims to have been a "victim" of the women's alleged hooliganism, accused Pussy Riot of being supported by the same "Satanic forces" that carried out the 11 September terrorist attack in New York in 2001.

Same thought when I first saw this title a while ago!

Nick interesting piece - a part from any thing else I always thought that RT, which is Russia Today, was basically Putin's propaganda tool - maybe even Putin thinks he is over doing it this time!
