Pussy Riot

Russian feminist punk rock band Pussy Riot has been found guilty of “Hooliganism, Motivated By Religious Hatred” and will have to serve 2 years in jail. Pussy Riot consist of Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Yekaterina Samutsevich, and Maria Alyokhina and were convicted after staging a protest performance in Moscow’s cathedral. You can watch that harmless protest video below. So basically, Fuck censorship and fuck religion while we’re at it!

MOSCOW — Police have rounded up pro-Pussy Riot protesters, including former world chess champion Garry Kasparov, and leftist opposition group leader Sergei Udaltsov.

Hundreds of Pussy Riot supporters had filled a narrow street where the court is located, chanting “Russia without Putin!” amid heavy police presence.

A Russian judge found three members of the provocative punk band guilty of hooliganism on Friday, in one of the most closely watched cases in recent Russian history.
