is an anonymous Russian Feminist Punk Band formed in October 2011.
Through a series of peaceful performances in highly visible places, the
band has given voice to basic rights under threat in Russia today,
while expressing the values and principles of gender equality,
democracy and freedom of expression contained in the Russian
constitution and other international instruments, including the
Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the CEDAW Convention.
Three alleged members of the feminist punk band Pussy Riot, Maria
Alekhina, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Ekaterina Samucevich, charged with
"hooliganism", have been remanded in jail, facing up to 7 years criminal punishment
for allegedly participating in the punk-prayer "Virgin Mary, Send Putin
Away" that publicly demonstrated for human rights and against the
current oppressive regime under Putin. The case illustrates the gross
level of violations against human rights in Russia and requires
immediate attention. The detained activists now need the support of the
world's community. Proceeds
poster will be donated to Pussy Riot's fund - they need money
to cover bail, lawyers, and to for childcare while they are in prison.
