Pussy Riot rallies for American Political Prisoner Cecily McMillan

“In breaking news, members of the punk band “Pussy Riot” have made their way from from Russia to the United States, to visit Cecily McMillan, 25, an American Political Prisoner. Ironically enough, there was widespread support for the jailed members of the punk band, when a brief musical set at a church resulted in serious time behind bars.

 

Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina spent nearly two years behind bars in Russia after their group performed a “punk prayer” song attacking President Vladimir Putin in an Orthodox cathedral located in Moscow.”  —Countercurrent news
