A Conversation with Pussy Riot

Pussy Riot
Eastern Europe and Central Asia

Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina, members of the Russian feminist punk rock collective Pussy Riot, talk candidly with the Daily Beast’s Michael Moynihan about the dehumanizing conditions of Russian prisons. After spending 21 months in jails and Siberian labor camp, they describe how prisoners are put to work for 16 hours a day, given showers once a week, andare often beaten while administrators look the other way. With characteristic dark humor and defiance, Tolokonnikova and Alyokhina discuss their ongoing fight against authoritarianism in Russia and their latest project, a website that details state corruption and unjust imprisonment, truths that the Russian government is trying to bury.
