Show Me The Booty

Last Thursday, the Russian feminist punk band Pussy Riot appeared in court after carrying out an anti-Putin “Punk Prayer” protest in Moscow’s Christ the Saviour Cathedral. The church branded Maria Alekhina, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, and Ekaterina Samutsevich “sinners” for the performance, and they were arrested for “hooliganism.” If found guilty, the charge carries a seven-year maximum sentence, which seems pretty harsh considering nothing in the church was broken and no one got hurt (Putin and his feelings aside, perhaps).

A number of supporters showed up at last week’s trial in solidarity, and 30 of them were arrested by Russian police. The stunt has managed to rally conservative Russians around the Orthodox Church, while at the same time hinting at just how closely linked state and church are in Russia (if the fact that the church is immune to taxes and prosecution wasn’t already enough of a clue).

On Monday evening, I went down to Notting Hill to see who’d brave the rain for a solidarity protest outside London’s Russian embassy.
