Today in Russia the Pussy Riot judgement was passed down in court and the three members of the all-girl anti-Putin punk rock band have all been found guilty of "hooliganism."

The band members threw an impromptu "punk prayer' concert in a church in Mosow and were arrested. A Russian judge has sentenced the trio to two years in prison, and this has sparked various protests and demonstrations around the world. Demonstrations in Toronto, Canada, began outside the Russian consulate and have been going on in dozens of cities. Protestors are showing their disapproval of the judges verdict and using music as a tool to voice their opinions.

Videos are starting to flow in from various cities showcasing the protests from the perspective of the outraged. Various celebrities are also taking a stance in this injustice such as Madonna and Paul McCartney.
