In March of this year, three members of the feminist punk band PUSSY RIOT were arrested after staging a protest performance at the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow. The band was protesting the corrupt and anti-democratic government of Vladimir Putin, as well as the open support of Putin by the leader of the Russian Orthodox Church. The members of Pussy Riot are currently on trial in Moscow for "hooliganism" and face a three year prison sentence.
