Video: Pussy Riot // 1937

Earlier this year Pussy Riot shared their Russian protest music video “1937” to demand the release of all Russia’s political prisoners and bring attention to the Russian unfair and corrupt “elections” to Moscow city parliament that were held on September 8th.

None of the independent candidates were registered, even worse – for making their political campaigns most of the independent candidates were arrested,  from 10 up to 40 days in detention centers. Moscow’s civil society replied with peaceful actions, rallies and marches that lasted the whole summer. Government met the people’s protest activity with an overly aggressive response: hundreds of injured with police batons, brutal mass arrests, bruises and blood on the streets of Moscow. We’ve personally been at those actions, some of us were beaten, some of us – arrested.

While most of the arrested activists are free now, there are a number of people who are going to spend years in prison camps because they joined the protests and tried to stop the police from slaughtering innocent unarmed people.
