We’ve been keeping an eye on Pussy Riot, from the start to their religious revolution to the circus of a trial and the a justice blasphemy of a conviction, so we’ll keep updating you on some news you may have missed.

  • The human rights ombudsman of Russia might challenge the conviction, even though he was nominated by Putin: “It is a misdemeanor that in a normal, civilized European state, which Russia is, is handled in administrative rather than criminal proceedings. That’s why I think the ruling on those women is excessive.”
  • There are some offended religious people in Novosibirsk who wanted $1 million from Pussy Riot in “moral damages” ’cause they saw some bit of clip on the TV or something.
  • Angry Kremlins is the new Angry Birds. Really.
  • Al Jazeera has in-depth, aware analysis of the world’s reaction to Pussy Riot. Thanks!
  • Chess champion Gary Kasparov, who was violently arrested while giving interviews outside the court during the trial last week has been cleared of charges. He did not bite that cop. This is a rare legal victory. Thanks to the internet! Gary tweeted images of his “illegal arrest & beating by police. I’m sorry if the officer injured his hand hitting me in the head!”
  • Zombie Walks in Russia are deemed as anti-Christian parades and hence, shut down. So many conflicting feelings.
  • “Free Pussy Riot” graffiti in Iran, possibly.
  • Apparently, it’s cool to say “Pussy” now.
