I’m mad now. PEN has been agitating around Russian repression and the Olympics since before the game started. For more information on how Putin has been trampling down gays and lesbians, journalists, and voices of dissent, check out their website — and play their social media mashup game. Pussy Riot forever!
Pussy Riot incorporate video of themselves being whipped by Russian cossacks in their new video for the hard-rocking protest anthem “Putin Will Teach You to Love the Motherland,” which, besides its geo-political significance, is a great song.
This is horrific: Pussy Riot members whipped and pepper sprayed on the streets of Sochi. Between this and the violence in Kiev, I’m officially done watching the Hunger Games.
