A message from our comrade, David Shortland…


“The company I work for has put together a ‘Free Pussy Riot!’ T-shirt to raise some funds – all our profits are going to the Pussy Riot fund for legal fees, childcare etc ( I’ve attached a little ad banner image we’ve made for it to this email.

I wondered if it might be possible for you to put a post about these on your blog? It would be a huge help.

You can see the tees here:

Pussy Riot are a Russian feminist performance art group and punk rock band. Three members, Ekaterina Samucevich, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alekhina, face imprisonment for an alleged one minute performance in a Moscow church. They are currently in detention and have been denied bail.

This is not an official T shirt. BSI Merch wanted to do something off our own backs to raise funds and awareness. We did this to help in the spirit of punk rock.

ALL BSI Merch’s profits raised from the sale of these T shirts will be sent to the Free Pussy Riot fund to help with expenses that range from case related to the women’s needs while in pre-trial detainment and for their children’s needs. Pussy Riot legal defense fund is administered by the women’s lawyers.”
