Pussy Riot, Storm Large, and John Sepulvado at Crystal Ballroom, 2/9/2016

By John Rudoff //

Two members of the freedom-loving feminist Russian collective Pussy Riot --Masha Alekhina and Ksenia Zhivago -- were joined by Storm Large and John Sepulvado of Oregon Public Broadcasting for a discussion of repression and its opposition in contemporary Russia. The organizer and translator, Alexander Cheparukhin, joined and moderated much of the talk, in addition to playing a trailer of his pending film 'Act and Punishment'. The talk also served to raise money for the plight of performance artist Peter Pavlensky, currently in a Russian prison for, among other acts, burning the door of the main office of the Russian State Security (FSB.)
