As the Guardian reports, Russian authorities are looking for more members of Pussy Riot who may have been involved in the initial protest:

Russian police are searching for more members of Pussy Riot, a spokeswoman said, signalling further pressure on the punk rock band despite an international outcry over jail terms for three women who protested against Vladimir Putin.

Police said on Monday they were searching for other members of the group in connection with the protest at Moscow’s Christ the Saviour cathedral in February, but had not yet identified the suspects.

Police did not say how many people they were looking for, or whether they faced arrest and charges or were wanted merely for questioning.


Meanwhile, in a report from the Australian, lawyers for Pussy Riot are taking steps to prevent their children from being taken in by the state during their imprisonment:

Lawyers for Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, 22, and Maria Alyokhina, 24, both mothers of small children they have not seen since their arrest five months ago, have prepared fostering agreements for the children as they fear social workers could take them away.


Via Dangerous Minds, a way to show and give your support to Pussy Riot’s legal team:

Our friends at The Voice Project charity have set up a store on Cafe Press to sell a tee-shirt based on the “NO PASARAN!” shirt seen worn by Pussy Riot’s Nadezhda Tolokonnikova (and other items with the fist logo). These “Free Pussy Riot” tees and merch, it is hoped, will help to raise money and awareness of the situation these Russian refuseniks find themselves in. 100% of profits go to their legal defense fund.


And in case you missed it, the group released a new song last Friday. It’s called “Putin Lights Up the Fires.”
