Pussy Riot: 'We Are Not Guilty; The Whole World Says So'

nprmusic:
What is going on today in cities all over the world is linked to what went down in Moscow the past few months. The actions outside Russia’s borders are led by the inheritors of the punk and riot grrrl mantles; there are communities around the world that recognize and see themselves in Pussy Riot’s lyrics and style. But we are far away. The three women who were today sentenced in that Moscow courtroom remind musicians that performance can be a dangerous form of protest and resistance. If the protestors in New York or Belgrade are arrested, there is little chance they will be sent to prison for two years.

— Frannie Kelley on the trial that’s set off a wave of global support.
