An Evening with Pussy Riot—Conversation and Q&A

Pussy-Riot-Buffalo-NYPussy Riot, the Russian feminist punk rock band that incurred the wrath of Vladimir Putin’s oppressive regime will be spending Thursday evening in Buffalo, talking about feminist rights in Russia, LGBT rights, guerrilla activism, and their music (among other things). 

The outspoken members of the band have been imprisoned, fled their native homeland, resisted arrest, staged unauthorized performances, disbanded, reunited, and are now traveling and telling their story, much to the chagrin of the Russian government.

Money raised during the tour is being directed to Zona Prava (Zone of Rights), which was founded by Pussy Riot members Masha Alekhina and Nadya Tolokonnikova. Zona Prava was established to help others in similar circumstances, who have been detained for speaking their minds in countries with oppressive governments. Masha (one of the founders) will be present at Hallwalls on Thursday evening. 

An Evening with Pussy Riot—Conversation and Q&A. Moderated by Karen Finley – audience Q&A to follow.

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
