The recent Pussy Riot fiasco has drawn the attention of, well, everyone. Three young girls are going to jail for 2 years as the result of their political protest in a Church. I doubt that much would have come of that at all in Canada and most of the US, but of course the deep south is another matter entirely.
Anyway … back to my point :-)
The Russian artist Petr Pavelensky (could someone please find that missing “e”?) protested today in front of St. Petersburg’s Kazan Cathedral. With his mouth sewn shut. Wow.
