Nadezhda Tolokonnikova Calls Out Putin, Rallying The People to Boycott Olympics

Nadezhda has become something of a champion for the rights of prisoners during her time in the Russian penal system. While she & her bandmate Maria Alyokhina have been freed under a Kremlin-based amnesty plan, she has spoken out, calling it a publicity stunt designed to help soften Russia’s image abroad in anticipation of the Sochi Olympics. They both are remaining in Russia to fight on behalf of those still imprisoned & to bring awareness to the diabolical shit going on there as the world turns its gaze to see how Putin can manage the anti-gay & anti-international sentiment he’s helped stoke there over the last few years as his grip on the country has tightened.
