Pussy Riot A lonelyfingers Finds collection

Riots improved a bit since the assassination of Julius Caesar. As you probably know that day of 44 BC in Rome an incensed mob took firebrands from the pyre and attacked the houses of Brutus and Cassius, as well as killing Helvius Cinna… Riots and Non-Violence Resistance Protests (NVR) only share few behaviour patterns; they are in fact quite different.

Eventually any NVR could become a riot but never the other way around. A riot is by nature unpredictable and by definition, a disturbance of the ‘peace’.Today protesting and getting the results you were seeking for, is quite a challenge. Contemporary anti-riot troops can dissolve strikingly fast any kind of public disturbances.

Therefore in order to effectively protest we need to be creative, we need to awake the curiosity and sensitivity of people, we need to make them laugh and most difficult of all tasks, we need to inspire them. That’s exactly what Pussy Riot has done to us, THANK YOU!
