The women of Pussy Riot have repeatedly made their intentions clear– as artists, they view “changing the world” as an extension of their jobs. Their actions, including this current hunger strike, confirm that they’re not fucking around. This isn’t a political endorsement or an appearance in a PSA – they’re intent on uprooting the system that they’re up against.

Nearly two months ago, former National Security Agency (NSA) contractor-turned-whistleblower Edward Snowden handed smoking-gun documents on the international surveillance apparatus to The Guardian and The Washington Post in what’s become one of the most captivating stories in recent memory.
