Re: Pussy Riot

"I protest the conviction and sentencing of Pussy Riot to a penal colony for two years for a 40 second performance extolling their political opinions. Even if one disagrees with the location or how they chose to express themselves, the sentence is too harsh and in fact is inhumane. I call on all those who love freedom to condemn this unjust punishment. I urge artists around the world to speak up in protest against this travesty. They've spent enough time in jail. I call on ALL of Russia to let Pussy Riot go free." Madonna

Not the only injustice in the world, but still a pretty ridiculous situation to find yourself in for a bit of artistic/political expression. Friends of 'Oranges', MankoJason Atomic have attended every protest from the start, in fact Manko found herself in this morning's edition of The Times. For the facts... http://freepussyriot.org/
