Yekaterina Samutsevich: Closing Statement at the Pussy Riot Trial. – "I now have mixed feelings about this trial. On the one hand, we now expect a guilty verdict. Compared to the judicial machine, we are nobodies, and we have lost. On the other hand, we have won. Now the whole world sees that the criminal case against us has been fabricated."

Escape Velocity Radio – You really need to hear the interview Todd and I did with Anishinabe journalist/ hip-hop artist Wab Kinew that appears on Escape Velocity Radio, a new podcast featuring me, Chris Hannah, as your host! Oh, it also features Derek Hogue as a co-host but no one cares about him or what he thinks. (08/09/12 by Jesus H. Chris #)
Support Russian Band PUSSY RIOT! – freepussyriot.org is a website to support Russian feminist performance art group, Pussy Riot. Three members of the group are being held in a Russian jail under completely inhumane conditions. They face 7 years in jail for a 1-minute performancein a priests-only section of Moscow's Cathedral of Christ the Savior. The song they performed is a critique of the relationship between the Russian government and the Catholic Church of Russia. Apparently special treatment for the church is of more importance than freedom, humanity and justice. (08/01/12 by The Rod #)
