(Nov. 11, 2017): Pussy Riot – Police State

From the 2017 Youtube release, Police State. A bit ironic that this finds its initial broadcast through a privacy shredding vehicle like Alphabet (Google’s parent). Still, the band nicely brings Trump and Putin into the same frame. As recounted in the New York Times:

Only one member of Pussy Riot, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, is clearly identifiable in the video. She said in a telephone interview from Berlin on Thursday that other members of the group needed to remain anonymous for their protection.

Ms. Tolokonnikova said she hoped the video would highlight “how difficult and dangerous it is for political activists to spread new information.” She added, “We’ve been attacked several times and people around us have been attacked and even killed — killed just because of political participation.”
