PUSSY RIOT TO BE TIME’S PERSON OF YEAR?

Russian punk group and incarcerated government protestors Pussy Riot have been named as contenders for TIME magazine’s person of the year.

Three of the members of the band were sentenced to two years jail after their impromptu protest performance inside a Russian Orthodox Church denouncing the church’s support of President Vladimir Putin.

With mega support from the international music community including Yoko Ono, Beastie Boys, Amanda Palmer and more, one of the members sentences was suspended but the other two remain in custody.

TIME magazine’s person of the year features and profiles a person, group, idea or object that for better or for worse, …has done the most to influence the events of the year.
