Pussy Riot Calypso

Zurich, 31-Aug-2012

Was very nice to see this simple act of Pussy Riot solidarity in a window display in a Zurich shop.

In case you missed it, Spiegel had a good interview with jailed Pussy Riot leader Nadezhda Tolokonnikova about a week ago.

SPIEGEL: You have a four-year-old daughter, and you must have known going into your performance in the church that arrest was a real possibility. Wasn’t that irresponsible toward your child?

Tolokonnikova: If you’re afraid of wolves, you shouldn’t go into the forest. I’m not afraid of wolves. I’m fighting for my daughter to be able to grow up in a free country. Legally, the court should have been able to convict us of no more than a misdemeanor. The criminal trial is Putin’s personal revenge, and no one can predict how and when an authoritarian system will exact revenge.

On her reading list behind bars? Among others Slovenian philosopher Slavoj Žižek.
