“I, like Solzhenitsyn, believe that words will crush concrete,” said Pussy Riot’s Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, standing in front of a slit in the glass and metal cage where the band’s three members have been held throughout their trial. “We sit in a cage, but we didn’t lose. And the dissidents didn’t lose. Disappearing in psychiatric wards and jails, they convicted the regime.”

Welp, I see Pussy Riot is now quoting the czarist counter-revolutionary Solzhenitsyn and comparing themselves to Soviet “dissidents.” Basing their defense on counter-revolution and the restoration of capitalism? At a time when the Russian government is actually standing up to imperialism over Syria and Iran? Not surprising, but whatever sympathy I might have had is hereby withdrawn.
