Members of Russian punk band Pussy Riot seek justice, face worsening prison conditions
DJ Rubble
Hear close to 40 minutes of music, European media reports, and interviews with band members. Two of the three women band members were jailed after playing an anti-Putin protest song in a Cathedral then posting it on You Tube. The charges were for “hoolidanism“ motivated by religious hatred. The performance was intended to highlight close ties between the Putin Administration and the Russian Orthodox Church. The Putin administration is reportedly under increasing pressure form a large cross section of Russians for human rights abuses. An international outcry to free Pussy Riot continues, with at least 9 international human rights organizations already weighing in. (39:13)
