"Heilige Mutter Gottes, erlöse Russland von Putin." Im August 2012 wurden Maria Aljochina, Nadescha Tolokonnikowa und Jekaterina Samuzewitsch, drei Mitglieder des Punk-Kunstkollektivs Pussy Riot, wegen "Rowdytum aus religiös motiviertem Hass" zu zwei Jahren Straflager verurteilt - ein politischer Skandal, der ein riesiges Presse-Echo und weltweit Solidaritätsbekundungen hervorgerufen hat. In dem vorliegenden Band wird bisher unveröffentlichtes Material zum ersten Mal auf Deutsch zugänglich gemacht: Briefe der Frauen aus dem Gefängnis, ihre Schlusserklärungen bei Gericht, Plädoyers der Rechtsanwälte sowie Songs und Gedichte, darunter das inkriminierte "Punk-Gebet", mit dem die Frauen im Februar in der Moskauer Erlöserkirche gegen Wladimir Putin demonstriert hatten. Die Texte bieten ein bedrückendes Bild der "russischen Demokratie", vom Filz zwischen Staat und Kirche, von der Realität im Gerichtsverfahren und im Gefängnisalltag - sie zeigen aber auch, wie mutig und stark der Widerstand dieser Frauen ist. Außerdem enthält der Band Solidaritätsadressen von Yoko Ono, JD Samson u.v.a. Ein Teil der Einnahmen aus dem Verkauf von Pussy Riot! Ein Punk-Gebet für Freiheit kommt der Verteidigung von Maria Aljochina und Nadescha Tolokonnikowa zugute.

On February 21, 2012, five members of a Russian feminist punk collective Pussy Riot staged a performance in the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow. Dressed in brightly colored tights and balaclavas, they performed their “Punk Prayer” asking the Virgin Mary to drive out Russian president Vladimir Putin from the church. After just forty seconds, they were chased out by security. Once a retooled video of the events circulated on YouTube (edited to seem much longer than the actual performance), the state was riled into action. Three members of the collective, Maria Alyokhina, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, and Yekaterina Samutsevich, known as Masha, Nadya, and Katya, were arrested and charged with felony hooliganism motivated by religious hatred, an offense carrying a sentence of up to seven years. As their trial unfolded, these young women became global feminist icons, garnering the attention and support of activists and artists around the world, including Madonna, Paul McCartney, and Sting, as well as contributors to this book: Yoko Ono, Johanna Fateman, Karen Finley, Justin Vivian Bond, Eileen Myles, and JD Samson. The Internet exploded with petitions, music videos, and calls to action, and as the guilty verdict was anticipated, Pussy Riot responded with articulate, unwavering courtroom statements, calling for freedom of expression, an end to economic and gender oppression, and a separation of church and state. They were sentenced to two years in prison, and inspired a global movement. Collected here are the words that roused the world.

Mit zehn Jahren wird Nadeschda Tolokonnikowa Feministin, mit sechzehn Philosophiestudentin, mit einundzwanzig Mitbegründerin der Band Pussy Riot. Mit ihrem Punk-Gebet macht die Gruppe die Welt 2012 auf die Verquickung von Kirche und Staatsmacht in Russland aufmerksam. Als Putins Richter sie verurteilen, nutzt sie die Bühne des Gerichts für eine Verteidigung der Freiheit und der Menschenrechte. Und während ihr Land sich der autokratischen Herrschaft ergibt, beharren sie und ihre Mitstreiterinnen darauf, dass Widerstand möglich ist. "Anleitung für eine Revolution" erzählt Nadeschda Tolokonnikowas Geschichte, und zugleich ist es ihr Manifest. Es handelt vom Kampf gegen ein System, in dem nur frei ist, wer sich anpasst.

From activist, Pussy Riot member and freedom fighter Maria Alyokhina, a raw, hallucinatory, passionate account of her arrest, trial and imprisonment in a penal colony in the Urals for standing up for what she believed in. 'One of the most brilliant and inspiring things I've read in years. Couldn't put it down. This book is freedom' Chris Kraus, author of I Love Dick 'Reading: RIOT DAYS, by PussyRiot member MariaAlyokhina. A women's prison memoir like no other! One tough cookie!' @MargaretAtwood 'In oppressive political systems, some of the most effective weapons are sarcasm and dark humour. It is exactly these weapons that are employed by Masha Alyokhina in the brilliantly written Riot Days. Once you begin reading, you are completely disarmed, unable to put it down until the last page' Marina Abramovic People who believe in freedom and democracy think it will exist forever. That is a mistake. What happened in Russia - what happened to me - could happen anywhere. When I was jailed for political protest, I learned that prison doesn't just teach you to follow the rules. It teaches you to think that you can never break them. It's inevitable that the prison gates will open at some point. But this doesn't mean that you leave the 'prisoner' category and go straight into the category of 'the free'. Freedom does not exist unless you fight for it every day. This is the story about how I made a choice. We are all Pussy Riot. And actions break fear. 'To Back Down an Inch is to Give Up a Mile'.

The heroic story of Pussy Riot, who resurrected the power of truth in a society built on lies On February 21, 2012, five young women entered the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow. In neon-colored dresses, tights, and balaclavas, they performed a “punk prayer” beseeching the “Mother of God” to “get rid of Putin.” They were quickly shut down by security, and in the weeks and months that followed, three of the women were arrested and tried, and two were sentenced to a remote prison colony. But the incident captured international headlines, and footage of it went viral. People across the globe recognized not only a fierce act of political confrontation but also an inspired work of art that, in a time and place saturated with lies, found a new way to speak the truth. Masha Gessen’s riveting account tells how such a phenomenon came about. Drawing on her exclusive, extensive access to the members of Pussy Riot and their families and associates, she reconstructs the fascinating personal journeys that transformed a group of young women into artists with a shared vision, gave them the courage and imagination to express it unforgettably, and endowed them with the strength to endure the devastating loneliness and isolation that have been the price of their triumph.
