Pussy Riot activists give speech at Roskilde Festival 2014

You can meet two members of the Russian activist group Pussy Riot. Roskilde Festival also donates DKK 300,000 (EUR 40,000) to the activists' newly formed organisation that focuses on prison conditions and human rights.

Come meet a couple of women who have been absolutely iconic figures on the international political stage.

This happens when the two previously imprisoned members of the feminist activist group Pussy Riot - Nadya Tolokonnikova and Masha Alyokhina - give a speech at our Gloria stage Friday 4 July at 17:30.

Imprisoned after punk happening
Pussy Riot was on everyone's lips as several of its members were imprisoned after a punk happening in Moscow's largest church. Today the two members Nadya Tolokonnikova and Masha Alyokhina have been released from prison, and they are campaigned on freedom of speech, prison reform and human rights worldwide. And soon, also in Denmark - at Roskilde Festival.

Roskilde Festival donates money to the two women's new organisation
Roskilde Festival Charity Society has donated DKK 300,000 (EUR 40,000) to the two Russian women's newly formed NGO called Zona Prava (Zone of Rights). The organisation aims to monitor conditions for prisoners in Russian prisons and focus on the suppression of human rights.
