#LOGANCIJ Pussy Riot: Russia's Official Media and How to Subvert It
Witt Maria Alyokhina
Goldsmiths, University of London, 13th of September 2013
In the first of our daring new #LOGANCIJ series of talks and performances we meet Maria Alyokhina of Pussy Riot.
A political activist, artist and founding member of the punk collective Pussy Riot, Alyokhina was convicted in 2012 of “hooliganism motivated by religious hatred” and sentenced to two years in prison. Upon her release she helped found Media Zona, an independent media outlet which aims to hold Russia’s justice system to account.
During this event she read extracts from her new book Riot Days  and answers questions from the CIJ and the audience about the reach of Russia’s official media in the age of Putin - and how to get around it.
