      Pussy Riot protest

      Join us for an afternoon of poetry, protest, tea and cake this Wednesday as Free Word and the Free Word free expression Founder Members Article 19, Index on Censorship and English PEN join cultural institutions around the world in a reading of solidarity for Pussy Riot, instigated by the Internationales Literatur Festival of Berlin.

      We’ll be welcoming poets Amy Key, Christodoulos Makris, Sophie Mayer and Redell Olsen, who will be reading a selection of poems from Catechism: Poems for Pussy Riot, a collection of works written in support of the band’s plight collected and published by English PEN. We’ll also be screening a short documentary introducing the Pussy Riot story so far, and hearing the statements made by the accused band members in court.

      Our Reading of Solidarity for Pussy Riot

      Posted by Free Word on 13/12/12

      On Wednesday 12 December the staff of the Free Word Centre gathered in the main hall to join a worldwide reading of solidarity for Pussy Riot, instigated by the International Festival of Literature in Berlin. Alongside cultural institutions around the world, the free expression organisations at Free Word came together to protest the trial and imprisonment of members of the Russian punk band with an afternoon of poetry, protest, tea and cake.

      After watching a shot documentary of the Pussy Riot story so far - which you can watch below - poets Sophie Mayer, Christodoulos Makris, Barbara Marsh and Redell Olsen read contributions to English PEN's book Catechism: Poems for Pussy Riot, which is also available as both an eBook and print on demand. Members of the Free Word team finished the afternoon by reading extracts from the final testimonies given by the band members in court, kindly translated by Sasha Dugdale.
