Russia's riot grrl punk band Pussy Riot was sentenced to two years in jail Friday for "hooliganism" in a trial that has electrified sentiment against Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The group was on trial for an unannounced performance in Moscow's main cathedral that included an anti-Putin song. The case has ignited debate about the country's free speech laws, and the sentence included "hooliganism motivated by religious hatred" and "offensive words" for Russian Orthodox Christianity.

So what? In certain countries in Europe (and in Canada) you can get arrested and thrown in jail for questioning ANY of the "kosher official version" of the "holocaust"..

These young ladies are heronines and prisoners of conscience.  If you still believe in anything, call your Senators, the White House, and your Rep and voice your support.
