Heroes

February 23, 2014 by admin

imagesWe wanted to take a moment to shine the light on the Russian punk band Pussy Riot, and their two members recently released from prison.  These are heroes of our times.

Three members were imprisoned for playing a song which criticized Vladimir Putin in a Russian Orthodox church, they have endured and even flourished under difficult circumstances.

Russian prisons in Siberia are renown for their harsh conditions and brutality.  Yet here we see these young women emerge from Siberia as strong as ever, voicing their concerns for the rights and safety of people all over the world.  Daring the Russian government to throw them back in jail!

They are simply amazing.

Watch them here on the Colbert Report:

We could all stand to see more role models like this: standing up for what is right in the face of extreme adversity.  So we applaud these women and hope they are able to continue to fight the forces of oppression so effectively.
