I thought this was interesting on the background of kitten Riot (from RadFem via I Blame the Patriarchy)

http://blog.iblamethepatriarchy.com/201 ... ch-drapes/

Quote:
It turns out, according to Radfem Hub, that kitten Riot is something akin to a women’s auxiliary of a Russian gang of pervy dude anarchists.** Known collectively as Voina, the group exploit the women in public stunts involving torture porn and humiliation. Suffice it to say that, although the kitten Riot women are branded by Western media as militant feminists and masked avengers championing the cause of freedom, the freedom in question is only sexual ... .
This is the only kind of “feminism” anyone around here ever sees anymore. Slutwalks, Boobythons, “nude revolutionaries,” 12-year-olds in Times Square wearing cheerful, colorful knitted bondage masks in solidarity with women’s sexual “empowerment.”

Is the Russia Prison System Working kitten Riot Member to Death?
A band member's hospitalization offers a harrowing glimpse into Russia's brutal prison system.

An incarcerated member of the Russian punk band kitten Riot has been hospitalized for illnesses related to prison work , reports the Associated Press . Nadezhda Tolokonnikova has reportedly been suffering severe headaches since last spring, when the 23-year-old began serving her two-year sentence on hooliganism charges. Fellow band member Yekaterina Samutsevich, who was released on appeal in October, told the independent Russian news service Rain TV, "They don't allow [Tolokonnikova] to have any rest; she works nearly round the clock … She said she feels tired, extremely tired.”

Tolokonnikova’s conditions offer a window into Russia’s brutal modern prison system, which have been described as “ Gulag lite ,” referring to the notorious labor camps of the Soviet Union under Stalin.

In November, a haunting, six-minute video showing prison guards mercilessly beating an inmate went viral, giving many outsiders a look into the kinds of abuse Russian prisoners face everyday. The Guardian reports that the video took off shortly after hundreds of prisoners in Kopeysk protested torture and horrible conditions in their jail.

Russian women face especially harrowing conditions, as documented by several Russian sociologists in the recent book, Before and After Prison: Women’s Stories . The report on women’s prison colonies, gathered from 35 interviews, reveals a horrible lack of privacy and wretched treatment for inmates. One notable section describes women being punished for menstruating onto their bed sheets.

"Lawlessness, despair, devastation, hopelessness are the key words that describe the incarceration of our interviewees," co-author Gyuzel Sabirova told The Moscow Times. Russia has the world’s third largest prison population with nearly 800,000 inmates.

2 members freed as part of wave of amnesty.

PRiot's Nadya Tolokonnikova cried "Russia without Putin!" when she was freed, because she remains an awesome badass. Marsha Alyokhina, also freed, said, "I don't think it's an amnesty, it's a profanation. I don't think the amnesty is a humanitarian act, I think it's a PR stunt. If I had a choice to refuse [the amnesty], I would."

BADASS.

I'm glad they're out, obviously, but it's totally a pr move. They were due to be released in March anyway, but that would have been too late to make Putin look all tolerant and benevolent and shiitake leading up to the Olympics.
