SSUR Releases ‘Free Pussy Riot’ T-Shirts and Snapback Caps

Most of you should have heard by now about the rather disturbing happenings in Russia surrounding the actions of band Pussy Riot against the Russian government and the outcoming arrest and charge with hooliganism of two members of the band. The news made their way around the globe and surprisingly, many political leaders in other countries stood behind Pussy Riot.

SSUR now presents the ‘Free Pussy Riot’ collection, consisting of t-shirts and a snapback cap.

“Pussy Riot is a Russian feminist punk-rock collective based in Moscow. Founded in August 2011, it consists of approximately 12 members, who wear brightly colored balaclavas and use only nicknames during interviews.

On February 21, 2012, five members of the group staged an illegal performance on the soleas of Moscow’s Cathedral of Christ the Saviour. Their actions were stopped by church security officials. By evening, they had turned it into a music video called “Mother of God, Chase Putin Away!”.

On March 3, two of the group members, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina, were arrested and charged with hooliganism. A third member, Yekaterina Samutsevich, was arrested on March 15.”

The SSUR products will be released on September 11, 2012.
