PUSSY UNITY – Free Pussy Riot!!! #solidarity #PussyRiot

Pussy Unity

We saw a photograph of the very wonderful Andrea Vander Kooij‘s ‘Balaclava for Kissing’ (2006 -Photo Credit: Kate Fellerath) and thought it made the perfect image to show solidarity with Pussy Riot.

Maria, Nadezhda and Ekaterina face up to seven years imprisonment for their alleged involvement in “hooliganism” (hooliganism being playing loud music apparently) at the ‘Christ the Savior Cathedral’ in Moscow, as Amnesty International reports:

Several members of the punk group ‘Pussy Riot’, with their faces covered in balaclavas, sang a protest song titled “Virgin Mary, redeem us of Putin” in the cathedral. The Russian authorities subsequently arrested Maria Alekhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova on 4 March and Ekaterina Samusevich on 15 March claiming they were the masked singers. Although the three women admit to being members of the larger ‘Pussy Riot’ group, they deny any involvement in the particular protest in the cathedral.

The next day of action is scheduled to coincide with the first day of their trial and the Free Pussy Riot website has some suggestions for ways in which you might like to show solidarity with Pussy Riot…

April 19th, the day of the trial is the action day to show your real support and solidarity with the Pussy Riot and their three alleged members unfairly jailed in Moscow!

Take Action and Make Noise:

–  protest in front  of Russian Embassy in your country
–  phone Russian Government
–  call press
–  wear your balaclavas
–  organize a gig
–  post on FB / Youtube / Twitter
–  send solidarity letters
–  donate

Join Our Protest and Demand Immediate Release of Maria, Nadezhda and Ekaterina!

More details can be found at the Free Pussy Riot website.
