Pussy Riot get two years in prison

Pussy Riot was apparently convicted of being disrespectful towards the thug Putin rather than of any actual crime. The whole thing was a show trial designed to stifle dissent, so the once popular and now not so much Putin must be very scared indeed about the growing dissent against him.

    All this criticism of Russia by Americans when in fact America has more people behind bars per head of population than any other country in the world. I have no doubt that the crimes those Americans have committed will be as varied and as ludicrous as any other country. You always seem to fall for the trick of demonising other countries to take your focus of your own authoritarian brutal regime. A state is a state, and will always do its damnedest to crush any resistance to its power.

      I condemn thugs wherever they are and have said plenty about corruption and repression in the States. I find your insistence that only the US can be criticized to be bizarre, especially when you also say that all states are repressive. If so, then why not criticize all of them rather than a select few?

    Here’s a song about it: Talking Pussy Riot Jail Sentence – Michel Montecrossa’s Song in honor of the Pussy Riot ladies, their freedom love, their art and humanity http://vimeo.com/47962235 Michel Montecrossa says about ‘Talking Pussy Riot Jail Sentence’:
    “I wrote this song to honor the Pussy Riot ladies for their freedom love, their art and humanity. They give hope to us – the people of the world – that a time is near when the people will take care of the need of the people, when love will rule and not power crazed politos and their soulless state machineries.
    The Orthodox Church was right when she expressed forgiveness and Mr. Putin will be right when he wakes up and sets Pussy Riot free.”
