Pussy Riot Organize a speaking engagement for Pussy Riot

Pussy-Riot-Maria-Masha-Alekhina-Nadezhda-Nadya-Tolokonnikova-speakers-evil-twin-booking-agencyPussy Riot is an anti-authoritarian art collective focusing on feminism, LGBT rights, and opposition to Russian President Vladimir Putin, whom the group considers a dictator, and to his links with the leadership of the Russian Orthodox Church.

Maria (Masha) Alekhina and Nadezhda (Nadya) Tolokonnikova are Russian conceptual artists and political activists, and founding members of Pussy Riot. In August 2012, they were sentenced to two years’ imprisonment following an anti-Putin performance in Moscow Cathedral of Christ the Saviour. This protest attracted international media attention and support from the likes of Sir Paul McCartney and Aung San Suu Kyi. Since their release they have continued their work, recently calling on the US congress to add 16 officials to the Magnitsky list of human rights violators who face U.S. sanctions.

In addition to being founding members of Pussy Riot, the duo are also the co-founders of Zona Prava, an NGO that focuses on the need for prison reform in Russia and prisoners’ rights, and the independent news service MediaZona which reports on the Russia’s courts, law enforcement and prison system.

Tolokonnikova and Alekhina are LennonOno Grant for Peace recipients.
