Free the Three.

The All-Girl, Russian Punk Rock Band, Pussy Riot was today (Aug. 17) sentenced to a penalty of 2 years prison for a political dance statement prank/performance… In a church. In Russia.

While supplies last we are giving away Free Stickers to spread awareness and support the band… And hopefully help start a conversation or two about freedom of expression.

Details after the jump.

A Moscow court on Friday (Aug. 17) found three members of the feminist punk band Pussy Riot guilty of “hooliganism motivated by religious hatred” after a guerrilla performance in Moscow’s main cathedral in February. They were sentenced to two years in a penal colony. The band occupied a church and performed a “punk prayer” to the virgin mary against Russian President Vladimir Putin.

You can read all about it here.

We understand that this took place in Russia, where the laws are different and that disrespecting the church is a delicate issue. But to us, this is simply a showdown of traditional vs liberal values, an outdated penalty in an antiquated system. Honestly… Wouldn’t imposing a fine appease the religious traditionalists, while still upholding the law? Two years in prison is an absurd penalty for what amounts to nothing more than a youthful political statement/performance by a band of artists. And after all… If it is truly a religious issue, shouldn’t they simply be “forgiven”? Hopefully the act by these brave young women helps usher in a change, however slight, in the strict political structure of post-soviet Russia and hopefully these stickers will encourage a few conversations about free speech along the way…
