Russia, Free Pussy Riot, Pussy Riot, Information in English about the trial o, Moscow

I do not feel rage because I am in prison. I hold no grudge. There is no personal anger. But there’s political anger.

Our imprisonment has served as a clear and obvious sign that the whole country is being robbed of freedom. And this threat of annihilating the freeing, emancipatory forces in Russia – that’s what causes me to be enraged. Seeing the large in the small, the trend in the sign, the common in the individual.

Second-Wave Feminists said the personal is political. That’s how it is. The Pussy Riot case has shown how the individual troubles of three people facing charges of hooliganism can give life to a political movement. A single case of repression and persecution against those who had the courage to Speak in an authoritarian country has shaken the world: its activists, punks, pop stars, and government members, its comedians and ecologists, its feminists and its masculinists, its Islamic theologians, and those Christians who are praying for Pussy Riot. The personal has become political. The Pussy Riot case has brought together as one forces so multidirectional, I still have trouble believing this isn’t a dream. The impossible is happening in contemporary Russian politics: a demanding, persistent, powerful and consistent impact of society on its government.

I am thankful to everyone who has said “Free Pussy Riot!” Right now, all of us are participating a large and important political Event that the Putin regime is having an ever more difficult time controlling. Whatever the upcoming verdict for Pussy Riot, we – and you – are already winning. Because we have learned to rage, and to speak politically.

Pussy Riot is happy that we have been able to spur a truly collective action, and that your political passion has proven to be so strong, it has cleared the barriers of language, culture, surroundings, and economic and political status. Kant would say that he sees no other reason for this Miracle besides man’s moral beginning. Thank you for this Miracle.

Even Toni Negri used his very repressive long time imprisonment, as a professor of laws, which was even more unjustified, for a very important study on SPINOZA: "The wild anomaly" is the title of the book, comprehending being in and as forcres. I think, "wild anomly" is the right philosophy, psychology, ontology, sociology, politics, the right name for what "Pussy riots" and the precedessors and allies are doing and are and like to be. Theologicians hate Spinoza in an almost paranoic way for centuries. And not only theologicians..
Incdeeedhe is real test on the "morality of the intellect", of course thinking about morality itself in the most possible deepest way.
