Recall That Russia and Rights Don’t Rhyme!

I truly hope that all United States citizens always remain aware of how good we have it, in terms of our rights to free speech.  Everyone around the planet can not boast to that liberty.  Russia is a strong and glorious nation that has a long history of termoil between it’s people and it’s leadership.  Albeit that nation’s citizens are currently “free“, Russia has had an extensive record of suppressing those whom reside within it’s borders.  A recent incident serves as a frightening reminder of how things had been organized, and still are somewhat situated, within the world’s largest nation.

The band Pussy Riot is an all-female rock band from Russia that has gotten a lot of recent attention.  This band could be described as extreme-liberal, with it’s members not accostumed to holding their tounges, or their opinions, while delivering musical presentations.  They regularly do shows while dressed in brightly-colored, flamboyant clothing, with their heads covered by balaclavas.  The band currently is designated under the reference of feminist punk-rock collective.  Pussy Riot often makes performances without notice, and their settings are to stage protests of situations that bring social disarray to their nation’s public, from their national government.

A concert was held August 9, featuring Madonna.  The international musical diva took time of her performance to wear a balaclava, which is worn regularly by members of Pussy Riot.  Her intention was to show support for Pussy Riot, whose members had been incarcerated because of their outspoken demeanor in a nation known for the oppression of civil liberties.  Madonna meant to promote a protection of international gay rights, and to demand that the band members be set free from Russian prison sentences.  The women of Pussy Riot performed February 21 at Russia’s Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, where they allegedly stormed the church altar, then they made some levels of impromptu and highly irregular prayers for Russia to be set free from the rule of President Vladimir Putin.

Madonna’s concert caused a stir with The United States Government, in regard to U.S. citizens travelling to Russia.  Her August 9th performance in St. Petersburg came with warnings to U.S. citizens who may have attended the show, as The U.S. Consulate to Russia had information about a possible attack on U.S. visitors to the concert.  Madonna finished her concert unscathed, and she did tell her audience to pray for the Pussy Riot singers.  After that, she turned backside to her audience, presenting her naked ass!
