Pussy Riot

The Pussy Riot trial wrapped up last week will have a verdict this Friday (8/17) at 3PM in Moscow (8AM EDT). The three members have been in jail for the last five months after being arrested for "hooliganism motivated by religious hatred" after they attended Moscow's Christ the Saviour Cathedral and staged a political protest against the election of Vladimir Putin. It's not looking very good for them.

On the eve of the verdict (8/16), the band's powerful courtroom statements will be read at Liberty Hall in the Ace Hotel by supporters of the Free Pussy Riot movement, including Chloe Sevigny, Eileen Myles, Karen Finley, Johanna Fateman, Mx Justin Vivian Bond and others to be announced. The reading starts at 7:30 PM and is free. A flyer for it is below.

On Friday (8/17) at 9 AM, there's a musical masquerade protest party outside Nicholas Orthodox Church; a march on Madison Ave at 11 AM; and a Times Square rally at 1 PM. Details on those events can be found here.

If Putin was smart, he'd just banish them from the country and not cause this socio-political-theological gaffe

Serious question: Didn't they seriously break Russian laws? I don't know much about the ordeal but I'm curious.

Serious question: How every time I Google "Free Pussy Riot," this weird Russian punk thing keeps coming up?

The real question is why is Chloe Smegmaeater relevant at all?

W.T.F. has that woman ever done other than drink Vincent Gallo's load on screen? She is the worst!

Don't forget she was in a Sonic Youth video 43 years ago

I wish the best for these young women but what they did was really stupid. Also, what does having a protest party here in NY hope to accomplish? And yes,Chloe Sevigny is as worthless as celebs come!

How is it stupid? They didn't hurt anyone. They didn't steal anything. They didn't harm any property. They sang a song at a church. That's it.

Pussy Riot should have saved the energy to shit on the Wythe yuppie hotel in Silver Lake W.Burg land.

Putin should poison the food at the Breslin at Ace Hotel.

The girls of Pussy is what left over from the Soviet revolution?
The Russian society is plunged into an unprecedented skepticism, mixed with lush capital?
While some want the "Sovereign God of the Free Market", others less versed want to forget the recent past?
The Church Ortho-X, in turn, use all conceivable spaces in Kremlin ... Was once a swimming pool in the Cathedral... The scene of bizarre dance, of the girls with the rebellious pelvis, has been destroyed and rebuilt with a church in the end of the USSR ... OhMyGod!
On the other hand the opposition to Putin and the heretics of dialectic Marx and Lenin, saying the girls are condoning sexists!? (...) The Pussy don't know the difference: of right of expression with expanção market?
I want to see the centenary of the Revolution with my head up! And you buddy Camarada???
