3 Arrested in Manhattan Pussy Riot Protest

Friday, August 17, 2012

Three were arrested outside the Russian Consulate in Manhattan on Friday, hours after a Russian judge found members of the punk rock band Pussy Riot guilty of hooliganism.

The three women who were arrested when they staged a protest against Vladimir Putin in a Moscow cathedral were sentenced to two years in jail. They were first arrested in March.

About 40 protesters gathered outside the Russian Consulate on East 91st Street, some wearing masks and holding banners that read: "We are all hooligans."

Putin and his criminal thug cronies should be arrested for "hooliganism"!

Hopefully they will get commuted sentences and eventually be pardoned.

FREE PUSSY RIOT!!!!!
