Pussy Riot Attacked, Temporarily Blinded In Nizhny Novgorod, Russia

It is clear that the attackers acted with the approval of the Nizhny Novgorod FSB, located nearby. However, we will still go to the prison today, so they have beaten us in vain, absolutely in vain.

We will go to the prison, despite the fact that the local police, “titushki” — the hooligans — and their bosses do not like it.

There’s not much to say. I hope they’re protected, and I will continue to take my hat off to them and cheer on their fight for those who need it. They’re still going to travel to the prison where convicts are treated like slaves (much like they’re treated here). Especially as Putin stares down the world, they stand, and literally fight. The thugs were wearing ribbons remembering WWII. Supporting the troops indeed. (via Huff Po)
