Eine Kleine Nichtmusik

"Belt of the Virgin is no substitute for mass-meetings": well, you can't argue with that.

Like a lot of people, I've been following the bizarre "trial" in Moscow of the members of Pussy Riot for carrying out a "punk prayer" protest in an Orthodox Church. It seems that the day of the Stalinist show trial has come again.

As an act of glasnost, to show support for the imprisoned women, and because it's interesting to see what all the fuss is about, here is a video of the "punk prayer". As the article states, the women mimed for around 40 seconds: the music was overdubbed afterwards (and the video looped to accommodate extra verses).
