Pussy Riot: Because we love a good protest…

By velosophist 27 May 2012 25

Who/what is Pussy Riot?

This is Pussy Riot and here they are performing the “punk prayer” for which three of the band’s members are facing a 7-year jail sentence.

You might have heard of Pussy Riot before. Earlier this year they made news with their colourful performance of their song, “Putin Pissed Himself”. (Translation here.)

Amnesty International has declared the three women detained by the Russian authorities to be “prisoners of conscience” and has called for their immediate and unconditional release. (More details on the trial at www.freepussyriot.org)

Because I would like to shake their hand for flipping Putin the musical equivalent of the bird, I thought I might go and stand outside the Russian Embassy on Canberra Avenue with a cardboard sign, but then Melbourne had to go and be all rad and put on this amazing event last Sunday in support of Pussy Riot.

Do you know of any bands or other groups that might be interested in participating in a similar do in the Capital? Any thoughts/experiences/tips to share with regards to protesting in Canberra?
