FREE THE PUSSY RIOT 3

    1. Petition by

      jim fouratt

PUSSY RIOT represent the international spirit of riot grrl music everywhere.  PUSSY RIOT  s role modeled on US band Bikini KIll who challenged sexism, misogyny and repression of ideas,

We support the right of all artists to write and sing songs of protest and dissent.

PUSSY RIOT, Maria Alyokhina, 24, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, 22, and Yekaterina Samutsevich, 29, were arrested in March after taking to the altar of Moscow's Christ the Saviour cathedral and singing a song calling on the Virgin Mary to "throw Putin out". a ,"punk prayer" in Moscow's main cathedral against Vladimir Putin's return as president as a trial against them opened in earnest.

Charged with hooliganism motivated by religious hatred or hostility, the women face up to seven years in prison if convicted – a punishment rights groups say would be grossly disproportionate no matter what the law says.

The band describe themselves as in the avant garde of a disenchanted generation that is looking for creative ways to show its dissatisfaction with Putin's 12-year dominance of the political landscape.

We demand the release immedately of the PUSSY RIOT 3
