Riot in Brooklyn

In a bit of a surprise, Amnesty International announced today that two of the three members of Pussy Riot (now freed) will be part of the group's big Feb. 5 concert at the Barclay's Center in Brooklyn. The concert will include performances by Lauryn Hill, Imagine Dragons, the Flaming Lips and others.  “We, more than anyone, understand how important Amnesty’s work is in connecting activists to prisoners,”  the pair said in the announcement. “A month ago we were freed from Russian prison camps.  We will never forget what it’s like to be in prison after a political conviction. We have vowed to continue helping those who remain behind bars and we hope to see you all at the Amnesty International concert on Feb. 5 in Brooklyn!”  -- G.M.
