Peaches - "Free Pussy Riot" Video

After a February protest/performance at a Russian Orthodox church, three members of the Russian feminist punk band Pussy Riot are facing years in prison for the charge of “hooliganism motivated by religious hatred.” They’ve been in the news a lot lately, and we’ll soon learn whether the international outcry to free them had any effect. In the meantime, electroclasher Peaches has recorded a new track called “Free Pussy Riot” in solidarity. And the video, which doesn’t seem likely to sway any Russian court functionaries, features footage from a Berlin rally in support of the band, as well as appearances from sympathetic artists like the Knife, Lykke Li, Peter Bjorn And John, Nick Zinner, the Hives, Miike Snow, Kate Nash, Light Asylum, Wayne Kramer, Marshall Crenshaw, JD Samson, and others. Watch it below.

The Pussy Riot verdict is expected tomorrow. There’s an online petition to free them up here.
