Feminist punk band Pussy Riot take revolt to the Kremlin

Anonymous band with provocative anti-Putin lyrics – who have become a symbol of Russian youth’s discontent – are preparing for their next surprise performance.

The band began writing songs with lyrics such as: “Egyptian air is good for the lungs / Do Tahrir on Red Square!” and performing on trams and in the metro. Videos of the flash gigs began spreading across the internet. When the protest leader Alexey Navalny was jailed for 15 days after his arrest during Russia’s first post-election protest on 5 December, three members of Pussy Riot took to the roof of the jail where he was being held, setting off red flares as they sang “Death to prison / Freedom to protest!”

Cars Circle Central Moscow in Anti-Putin Protest

Thousands of cars flying white ribbons or balloons circled central Moscow on Sunday in a show of protest against Russian Prime Minister Vladimir Putin. More protesters stood along the side of the road waving white ribbons and flags as the vehicles passed, their horns blaring.

Putin is running in a March 4 presidential election to reclaim the post he held from 2000 to 2008. He is expected to win, but is under pressure to show he can win fairly.

The protest movement has been driven by young professionals, cultural figures and other members of the urban middle class, many of them connected through online social networks.

Putin Defiant After 100,000 Rally Rocks Moscow

The protests were triggered by widespread claim of election fraud which handed a reduced majority to Putin’s ruling United Russia party.

35 year old Russian blogger and political activist Alexei Navalny vowed one million people would attend the next anti-Putin rally but the opposition has yet to announce when this will happen.

Gorbachev’s call

The last Soviet leader, Mikhail Gorbachev, also called on Putin to quit, just as he had done Dec. 25, 1991 when the USSR collapsed exactly two decades ago. “I’m happy that I have lived to see the people waking up. This raises big hopes,” the 80-year-old Gorbachev said on Echo of Moscow radio. He urged Putin to follow his example and give up power peacefully, saying Putin would be remembered for the positive things he did if he stepped down now.

Largest protest since collapse of Soviet Union rocks Russia

Russia’s leadership was forced to defend its legitimacy yesterday after about 100,000 demonstrators rallied in central Moscow to demand democratic reform and fair elections in the largest wave of popular dissent since the fall of the Soviet Union.

This comes on the heels of the arrest of Russia’s top political bloggers Alexei Navalny for protesting against election fraud.

Vladimir Putin scoops Chinese peace award :: Russian prime minister is unlikely winner of newly established Confucian peace prize.

The award which was chosen by an obscure cultural organisation, the China International Peace Research Centre. The field of nominees included Bill Gates, Angela Merkel, Kofi Annan, Jacob Zuma and a Tibetan Panchen Lama imposed by Beijing.

Come on, just try telling me you wouldn’t pay big bucks to see Obama play badminton against Biden. I mean, if Putin and Medvedev can do it, why can’t we? And why stop there? Doubles anyone?

Enjoy…
