Members of the Russian performance-protest-collective called Pussy Riot are speaking out against the Russian government and inhumane prison conditions. In 2012, three of the group's members were imprisoned for staging a raucous anti-Putin protest in a Russian Orthodox cathedral in Moscow. They have since been released, and are using their voices to attract people to their cause.
