Pussy Riot Global Day of Action
In solitary with Melbourne Craftivists (http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/booksandartsdaily/pussy-riot/4185712), we decorated fences to protest the imprisonment of the Russian punk feminist band Pussy Riot. This was part on a Global Day of Solidarity, August 17th 2012, where countries saw protest, in Paris, Sweden, Germany, Poland, France, China, to name but a few.
Why are we protesting
Pussy Riot were imprisoned and not given a trial for 5 months, for singing a Punk Prayer in a Church. They did this to protest the collusion of the Russian president Putin, with the church.
