Pussy Riot – “Witches Of Pussy Riot Clean Manezhka” Video

The once-incarcerated Pussy Riot members Nadya Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina spent much of this year in the U.S., where they visited Colbert, took the stage at Vice20, and filmed a cameo on House Of Cards. They’re now back in Russia, and their group just shared a new video called “Witches Of Pussy Riot Clean Manezhka,” in advance of a massive protest that will come to Moscow’s Manezhka Square tonight. The Russian government has tried and imprisoned the Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny and his brother Oleg, and that’s the reason for the demonstration. In the video, we see members of Pussy Riot putting on makeup and gowns and sweeping Manezhka Square while a tense minute-long electro-punk song plays. Check it out below.

This probably goes without saying, but it’s incredibly brave for these women to be showing their faces.
