Pussy Riot Benefit

May 30, 2012

Mark your calendars. On Tuesday June 12th at 8pm Heliotropes, Shady Hawkins, TinVulva and DJ Adam “Adrock” Horovitz are playing a benefit for the band Pussy Riot’s  legal defense fund.

It’s at Death By Audio in Brooklyn 49 S.2nd Street @ Kent Ave. It’s all ages. $7 donation asked but please give more if you can.

Three alleged members of the feminist punk band Pussy Riot, Maria Alekhina, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Ekaterina Samucevich, charged with “hooliganism”, have been remanded in jail, facing up to 7 years criminal punishment for allegedly participating in the punk-prayer Virgin Mary, Send Putin Away that publicly demonstrated for human rights and against the current oppressive regime under Putin. The case illustrates the gross level of violations against human rights in Russia and requires immediate attention. The detained activists now need the support of the world’s community.

The show is put on by Permanent Wave, a burgeoning feminist movement, wanna get involved? www.thepermanentwave.org
