On the heels of yesterday's public square whipping by Russian Cossacks, Pussy Riot has released its latest video, "Putin Will Teach You How to Love the Motherland", a rough "Olympics-centric protest song" as Animal reports:
The lyrics condemn the corruption, surveillance and censorship in Sochi, the jailing of anti-Olympics environmental activist Yevgeny Vitishko, the homophobia of Olympic torchbearer and the persecution of May 6 anti-Putin protestors.
It also features footage shot yesterday when Nadya Tolokonnikova, Masha Alyokhina and others were viciously horsewhipped and beaten by Sochi’s conservative, religious Cossack militia, including video filmed from right under their whips and their injured male art-bandmate wiping the blood from his face on a cop.
The group writes in the video's description:
Freedom to all political prisoners on the May 6 case, to the environmentalist Evgeny Vitishko and all other political prisoners! See you at the Zamoskvoretsky court in Moscow on February 21 at 12.00 - when the judge will start to read the sentence for the May 6 case.
Watch the video, AFTER THE JUMP...
