Members of the group Pussy Riot were attacked by police as they began an impromptu performance at Sochi today.

The group were preparing a performance under an Olympic sign when the security (Cossack police) pounced, spraying them with some kind of pepper-spray, beating them with whips and assaulting them. The police also attacked photographers on the scene.

The lack of human rights in Russia hasn’t affected the corporate circus that is the Olympics but the constant arrests and beatings are surely tarnishing the competition.

An interesting aside is that Russia Today news channel posted a video of the attack on their Youtube page but it has since been deleted.

  1. Interesting the misogyny conjured by this story. I’m all for poking fun at anything in the world, but yours is a witless and idiotic stance. It’s never that funny if it’s not clever, but in this case it’s just pathetic.

  2. those men doing the beating and pepper-spraying there… they’re not really human, they’re kind of human, just not conceived in the normal way humans are. they’re not born to human mothers. they grow inside cocoons amid that congealed greeny brown stuff which accumulates on the floor in public toilets and after a short while they grow legs and join the cossack police. true story. you’re one of those too, dylan.
