Pimp My Artwork 068: We Are All Pussy Riot

When the verdict came in we were all shocked, two years for a one minute performance.  Coilhouse posted this article and today this comment from a Russian reader came in.

Watching this from inside the country, it’s certainly an eerie experience. The entire trial is a farce. It’s so bad, it’s literally embarrassing, and anybody can see that. However, the complete lack of transparency, and the fact that the girls are basically being tried for violating laws that don’t exist, just doesn’t seem to matter to a shocking number of citizens.

Truth is, not that many people were offended – at least, not at the start. However, the state-sponsored media made such a huge deal out of it – reminding us over and over that all Christians should be offended and horrified – that the prosecution actually got a lot of support from the average Russians who get all their information from television. This is the part that scares me most – people are offended because they’re told to be. People want the girls to burn, because they were told that they want the girls to burn. Backed by the criminals in charge of Russia, the Orthodox Church does as it pleases, and says whatever it wants (such as saying that nonbelievers should be confined to insane asylums), but will not tolerate any backlash.

We’re seeing a return to the oppression and control of the USSR, but this time the cult of The Great Leader is being replaced with medieval religious views. Unless you’re a conservative Orthodox Christian – and preferably a male one – you have no feelings to hurt, no rights to exercise, no opinion that deserves to be listened to. My plane out of here is in two weeks, and never before have I been so excited about a 12-hour flight. - Kman

Many of us are doing our own protests.  VICE Magazine did "We Too Are Hooligans" where each person got "Hooligan" tattooed on them in Cyrillic to show support.  Kate Black took some amazing photos of the session.  I got my own a day later.  Thanks Jon Lane and Shannon Moran at Triple Diamond Tattoo.

A FEMEN activist went topless with a chainsaw and destroyed a four-meter high wooden crucifix in Kiev, just as a Moscow court was due to deliver its verdict.

And this collective "Let's Start a Pussy Riot" is doing a call for submissions. If you're an artist, writer, musician, filmmaker etc.  Send them your art, writing, films, music etc and they'll post it on their blog. 

We Are All Pussy Riot.
