Yesterday I went to the Pussy Riot press conference at Amnesty International. The two members present, Nadya and Masha, spoke Russian though an interpreter who happened to be Nadya’s husband, Peter Verzilov.
Nadya and Masha opened the conference with a joint statement that highlighted the human rights violations in Russia that led them to protest and ultimately led to their imprisonment. They also discussed in detail the conditions they experienced while in prison, and what typical criminal trials are like in Russia.
Nadya and Masha stressed their belief that all media in Russia runs through government control and that speaking out in other countries, such as the United States, is the only way to get their message heard. They both believe that Russian laws are designed to suppress freedom of speech.
When asked if they would acknowledge the many injustices that occur in U.S prison systems, they said they seek to learn more during the duration of their stay.
Their main goal is to engage in an exchange of experiences. Nadya stated that they are launching their own human rights organization called “Zona Prova”, or “Zone Of The Rights”. Their main mission is to call for an International control of prison systems.
