Summary
"A Pussy Rioters riveting, hallucinatory account of her years in Russias criminal system and of finding power in the most powerless of situations. In February 2012, after smuggling an electric guitar into Moscows iconic central cathedral, Maria Alyokhina and other members of the radical collective Pussy Riot performed a provocative 'Punk Prayer,' taking on the Orthodox church and its support for Vladimir Putins authoritarian regime. For this, they were charged with 'organized hooliganism' and were tried while confined in a cage and guarded by Rottweilers. That trial and Alyokhinas subsequent imprisonment became an international cause. For Alyokhina, her two-year sentence launched a bitter struggle against the Russian prison system and an iron-willed refusal to be deprived of her humanity. Teeming with protests and police, witnesses and cellmates, informers and interrogators, Riot Days gives voice to Alyokhinas insistence on the right to say no, whether to a prison guard or to the president. Ultimately, this insistence delivers unprecedented victories for prisoners rights. Evocative, wry, laser-sharp, and laconically funny, Alyokhinas account is studded with song lyrics, legal transcripts, and excerpts from her jail diarydispatches from a young woman who has faced tyranny and returned with the proof that against all odds even one person can force its retreat."--Publisher description
