world cup riot

world cup riot

from 35.00

#art/#history: #otd in 2018, i witnessed the greatest world cup match ever - & i saw the 1986 quarter-finals. it had nothing on this one. not only did kylian mbappe become the second only teenager (pele is the first) to have scored a goal in a world cup final (& help make champions of les bleus), but there was a political protest against the host nation's regime. pussy riot invaded the pitch just after the second half began (in the 52nd minute). one of them even managed to share a jovial high-10 with young kylian before being bustled off by security. when pussy riot claimed responsibility, they released a list of demands:

- free all political prisoners
- stop jailing people for social media 'likes'
- stop illegal arrests at protests
- allow political competition
- stop fabricating criminal cases & putting people in jail for no reason

i worry for them.

(pictured is maria alyokhina & she is not afraid. she knows that the russian government can only take away her 'so-called freedom' but not her inner freedom. get ready to defend them.)
