Pussy Riot: Riot Days


I walked in not knowing what to expect. I was both jet-lagged and sick.

Just a little background for those who aren't politically informed with what's been happening in Russia and the wider world.

Pussy Riot is a Russian feminist protest punk rock group based in Moscow formed in 2011. The activist group are fighting for change, fighting for prisons rights, gender equality, world peace and are fiercely opposed to Russian President Vladimir Putin, whom the group considered to be a dictator. Many of the members have spent time in prison, but by the looks of things this has only made them fight stronger.

Riot Days was a combination of a live Art performance/concert/protest/riot/speech and singing purely in Russian with video footage playing behind with subtitles. I just wanted to do whatever was needed to help! Anyone can be Pussy Riot!
