Three women of the Russian punk band Pussy Riot were arrested after playing music as part of a demonstration against government corruption. They have been held since March 15, 2012. They have been declared Prisoners of Conscience by Amnesty International and need your support. Please go to their website and join those calling for their immediate release. (Note, they didn’t have an accordion with them, but we hope they will once they’re free!)
