The re-blog Pussy Riot rocks the world! (reblogged from the blog of internet brain child) provided links to three remarkable videos about the incredibly courageous “happening” that was staged by three female members of the Russian punk-rock band Pussy Riot in a Russian Orthodox Cathedral.  They prayed for the Virgin Mary “to drive away Vladimir Putin”.   Of course, now they are in jail, awaiting trial.   You have probably noticed that the judicial system in Russia today is not noted for its impartiality, nor for its freedom from political influence.

Now there is a petition that you can sign to support the three courageous performers.  The petition was created by Peaches, Simonne Jones, and John Renaud, who are artists and activists in Berlin, Germany, and it is hosted by Change.org.  Please sign it.
