Protesters take to streets as punk band members jailed
Human rights activists took to the streets yesterday in support of rock band Pussy Riot, who were jailed for two years for hooliganism in Moscow.
Crowds of banner-waving supporters protested outside Russia’s embassy in Kensington Palace Gardens, London, and masked demonstrators also protested in O’Connell Street, Dublin’s main thoroughfare.
Three female band members were sentenced to two years in prison each for hooliganism driven by religious hatred and offending religious believers.
