Björk Selling T-Shirts Supporting Pussy Riot - The Reykjavik Grapevine

Björk Selling T-Shirts Supporting Pussy Riot

Published August 27, 2012

Artist Björk Guðmundsdóttir has begun selling T-shirts in support of imprisoned Russian punk rock band Pussy Riot.
Björk, like many Icelanders, has shown a great deal of support for the band, who were sentenced to two years in prison for staging a protest song in an Orthodox church in Moscow last February.
Rolling Stone now reports that Björk is selling T-shirts in support of the band, with all proceeds to go towards the group’s legal costs, and to prevent their children from being sent to foster care while their mothers are in prison.
The T-shirts can be bought on Björk’s official site.
Currently, Russian authorities are still not letting up on the band. Even with three of its members in prison, Reuters reports that police are still searching for remaining members of the band.
