New Poster: “Free Pussy Riot!”


Tagged: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

The Russian feminist punk band, Pussy Riot, has been sentenced to two years in a penal colony for playing a 40 second “punk prayer” in a Moscow cathedral. The lyrics call on Mary to expel Putin. There are some signs that the Russian government is starting to get nervous about this incident being “blown out of proportion,” at a moment when they are economically floundering and are courting the West for business and investment.

Spreading the word that the world is watching will help put pressure on Putin’s government to reduce or suspend the sentence. These young women have already been in jail for almost 6 months.
