4 PUSSY RIOT MEMBERS GET 15 DAY JAIL SENTENCE FOR

“POLICEMAN ENTERS THE GAME” HERE DURING WORLD CUP

Following up the football field action "Policeman Enters The Game", in which four Pussy Riot activists invaded the field demanding the release of political prisoners, Pussy Riot are releasing a “Track About Good Cop”.

“This track is a utopian dream about alternative political reality in which instead of arresting activists and putting them in jail cops are joining activists. The world where cops got rid of homophobia, stopped the war on drugs and actually understood that it's much better to be joyful and nice to people.”

Today also marks a victory in the court against their Russian government as the European Court of Human Rights condemned Russia for its harsh, humiliating and severe treatment of the Pussy Riot members after the 2012 protest in the Moscow cathedral.

Policemen are dancing along the track that goes: "Cops are kissing under the clouds".

We demand:

  1. Free Pussy Riot members Olga Pahtusova, Olga Kuracheva, Nika Nikulshina, Peter Verzilov, who are jailed for 15 days for their "Policeman Enters The Game" action during the World Cup.

  2. Free Oleg Sentsov and other political prisoners.

  3. Don't put people in jail for likes and reposts.

  4. Stop mass arrests at political rallies.

  5. Stop fucking with Navalny.

  6. Stop imprisoning so many people for 228 article of Criminal code (drug offenses).

  7. Cancel 282 article of Russian Criminal code ("extremism", one of the main political criminal articles)

  8. Freedom of speech and expression in Russia.

  9. Give a federal TV-channel to an activist media outlet "Mediazona" (zona.media)

Lyrics:
girls and boys / sugary streets / cops are kissing under the clouds

girls and boys / sugary streets / cops are kissing under the clouds

girls and boys / sugary streets / cops are kissing under the clouds

girls and boys / sugary streets / cops are kissing under the clouds

me and you, me and you / we are dancing, we are not cops / me and the cop, me and the cop / we've turned from enemies in a duo

me and you, me and you / we are dancing, we are not cops / me and you, me and you / we are / dancing, we are not cops / me and you, me and you / me and you, me and you / you, you we are dancing, we are not cops

affairs with the power are not beautiful / there's plenty of buzz in life without pulling your badge out
your affairs with power are careless / it will betray you - you will go to Siberia; she will go to eternity

girls and boys / sugary streets / cops are kissing under the clouds

girls and boys / sugary streets / cops are kissing under the clouds

me and you, me and you / we are dancing, we are not cops / me and you, me and you / me and you, me and you / you you we are dancing, we are not cops

two two eight two zero five / dasha came out for a walk / for the freedom to demonstrate / for the freedom to have fun / one twenty eight / three nineteen / the cop says into the radio / two-eight-two part one, part two / mom, I don’t like correctional service

girls and boys / sugary streets / cops are kissing under the clouds


Alongside the recent live actions, there will be new art revealed to spread the continued calls for action and protest to a wider audience.

Some of Pussy Riot’s members’ identity was unfortunately and abruptly revealed after her arrest for performing 35 seconds of the Punk Prayer “Virgin Mary, Put Putin Away” in Moscow’s Savior’s Cathedral in 2012. Since then Pussy Riot’s worked on new music and video art, such as: “I Can’t Breathe”, their first English language song made in honor of Eric Garner, “Chaika” about Russia’s corrupt prosecutor general, “Make America Great Again” which was eerily created and shot before #45 was elected president, and “Police State” with a video starring Chloe Sevigny and released at the end of last year.

Art is just a part of Pussy Riot’s mission. In 2014, since the release of two members from prison, they launched Mediazona, a free-of-censorship independent Russian media agency focusing on law enforcement issues like conditions in prisons and prosecutions of political activists. Activists of Pussy Riot are advocating for the prison reform in Russia and providing help and lawyers to prisoners.
