Galway Pussy Riot Allied Irish Bank Action

category galway | anti-capitalism | news report author Sunday February 03, 2013 14:15author by GPR Report this post to the editors

On Feb 1st, St. Bridget's Day and Human Rights Day, Galway Pussy Riot in solidarity with the three Pussy Rioters two who were sent to a Russian labor camp gave a 20 minute riotous and righteous rant outside AIB bank in Galway calling for the tearing down of the false gods of capitalism, the freemarket, greed, their minions in the Irish Government and the Troika.

They went into the bank naming and shaming those who have destroyed our country and are now sucking on the nipples of Nama and gorging on the lifeblood of the Irish people with austerity, debt and so called "pain sharing."

Good news, this is the official Ombudsman,

Pussy Riot sentence unlawful, must be canceled – HR ombudsman Lukin. Russia’s top human rights official has addressed a court with a request to cancel the prison sentences of the members of the world-famous feminist punk band Pussy Riot, saying they are unlawful.

The news about the ombudsman’s intervention came after the Presidium of the Moscow City Court accepted the appeal by the Pussy Riot defense team, who continue to insist that their clients must be fully acquitted as their crime was of a non-violent nature and caused no material damage. In addition the defense points to alleged procedural violations during the investigation and the trial process itself.

This time, however, the lawyers’ claims are backed by Vladimir Lukin, Russia’s top ombudsman for human rights, who requested that the sentence be canceled. The punk performers violated no laws, only the internal conduct rules of the Christ the Savior Cathedral where they performed their most famous stunt, reads Lukin’s address to the court, which was partially reprinted by Kommersant daily.

Such behavior cannot be considered a blatant violation of public order and besides, the prosecutors failed to prove that the convicted girls were motivated by religious hatred, it reads. Therefore, Lukin concludes, the court verdict must be recognized as unjust and annulled.

Maybe Galway Pussy Riot will consider going into the cathedral during a full mass and ranting against the capitulation of Enda Kenny to Shell, frackers, privatisation of our resources, paying off the banksters, and the troika, and against the rape of children by priests, lenient punishments for same, the paying of compensations to people who were molested by priests by the taxpayer instead of the church, and about the church's part in the magdalane laundries.

Lets see what sort of leniency such actions get in free Ireland compared with Russia.

I reckon they'd get 5 years, a garda beating, and a huge fine for that here!!
