Pussy Riot sack their lawyers and play to the crowd

by | 1st, October 2012

TO Moscow, where feminist punk group Pussy Riot – the famous group whose songs you can’t name, let alone hum – are in court. Maria Alekhina, Yekaterina Samutsevich and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, sat in a glass cage at a court room in Moscow. The trio are appealing their two year sentences for performing a “punk prayer” against President Vladimir Putin at Moscow’s Christ the Saviour Russian Orthodox Cathedral. They’ll be back in court on October 10, because Samutsevich sacked her lawyers. The delay allows her to hire new lawyers. She and her two co-appellants say they committed no crime.

Meanwhile, Pro-Pussy rioters protesting in Greece donned a huge cowl. If they get bigger, might the face of feminism end up being ni=ot a lot unlike the burqa?
