Laurie Penny interviews Pussy Rioters  
It's a good insight into the conditions of people on the run. I write about people in their condition a lot and it's always much worse than I can imagine. No trust, no sleep, anyone might betray you in a flash.

It also gives me a horrible view into how sexist and vile the world really is. I don't have a problem with strong, opinionated, tough women, but lots and lots of people do. I'm glad I'm this way but it twists my guts at the sickness of most of humanity.

"People fear us because we are feminists.

You should get ahold of the documentary somehow or other!! You'll root for Pussy Riot but you can't help but be in awe at the Orthodox biker activists.

Yeah I think I posted about it on facebook a couple weeks ago. It was really interesting, both as a documentary about them but also as a glimpse into the Russian legal system.

And yes, the Orthodox guys who were protesting Pussy Riot! For guys I totally disagree with, they WERE kinda awesome.
