!! OMG, watch Austra’s Pussy Riot protest video !!


Earlier today, a Russian court found three members of the feminist punk band Pussy Riot guilty of hooliganism motivated by religious hatred for an anti-Putin protest they staged inside Moscow’s largest cathedral in February. They have been sentenced to two years in prison. The term includes the time they’ve already served since their arrest in March.
The five-month case has galvanized musicians and artists in Russia and around the world. Madonna, Bjork and Paul McCartney have spoken out in support of the band’s right to free speech and Peaches released a song and music video “Free Pussy Riot!” Now, electro-pop outfit Austra has followed suit with a grim protest video directed by Claire Edmonson. Watch it above.
Today is the Global Free Pussy Riot day of protest. Go here to find out if there’s an event in your city.

!! OMG, Peaches unleashes “Free Pussy Riot!” video !!


A cavalcade of music stars has spoken out against the arrest of Russian feminist punk group Pussy Riot in recent weeks but you gotta hand it to Peaches and Simonne Jones who’ve done some next level shit and written a song for the global free speech movement that has rallied around the band. Today, Peaches posted the Berlin-shot music video “Free Pussy Riot!” online along with links to sign the petition calling for the band’s release and donate to the cause.
Pussy Riot is an all-female performance collective that dresses in brightly-colored outfits and balaclavas. In March, members Maria Alyokhina, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Yekaterina Samutsevich were arrested and charged with ‘hooliganism motivated by religious hatred.’ A month earlier they had shot and uploaded a video to YouTube of five members performing a ‘punk prayer’ at the altar of Moscow’s Cathedral of Christ the Saviour of the Russian Orthodox Church asking the Virgin Mary to chase Vladimir Putin away ahead of the Russian leader’s third presidential bid, which he won.
The Pussy Riot trial wrapped up last week but the verdict is expected to be handed down on August 17, which is also the Global Pussy Riot Day of protest. Go here to find out if there will be a Pussy Riot event in your city.

!! OMG, cluck off: FKH8 campaign takes on Chick-Fil-A !!


The FKH8 campaign has something to say about the controversy that’s sprung up over Chick-Fil-A’s anti-gay stance, and not surprisingly it comes with a side order of middle finger. “Tell Chick-Fil-A to cluck off,” the slogan says, and — even though I’ll miss those delicious waffle fries — I think it’s time to quit the homophobic chicken chain.
