Pussy Riot is a group of approximately 11 women from Moscow, Russia. They are a punk-rock collective with lyrical content ranging from LGBT rights to the relationship between the Russian Orthodox Church and Vladamir Putin, who they view as a dictator. 

“Pussy Riot’s performances can either be called dissident art or political action that engages art forms. Either way, our performances are a kind of civic activity amidst the repressions of a corporate political system that directs its power against basic human rights and civil and political liberties.” -Tolokonnikova

On August 17, 2012, three of the women were found and convicted of “premeditated hooliganism performed by an organized group of people motivated by religious hatred or hostility.” They were sentenced to two years in a penal colony. When asked for comment, they stated they would never humiliate themselves by asking Putin for a pardon, and that their imprisonment serves as a clear and unambiguous sign that freedom is being taken away from the entire country.”

Successful people are always looking for opportunities to help others. Unsuccessful people are always asking, “What’s in it for me?” #greedyfucks
