World: Pussy Riot

Pussy Riot is a Feminist Punk-Rock Band from Russia. They are known for their political activism in Moscow. On February of this year, they staged a “performance” on the Moscow’s Cathedral of Christ The Saviour, motivated by their opposition to current Russian president Putin and the politics of the Russian Orthodox Church. They were stopped by the church security after they did sever damage to property of the church. Their trial began on July and raised a lot of controversy in Russia and Globally. Yesterday they were convicted for hooliganism motivated by religious hatred and they were convicted for two years in prison.

Personally I’m not a religious person and consider myself and atheist but I respect other religions and believe that their punishment was too light. What they did was still a hate crime and should take on a harsher sentence. But, courtrooms are not about who speaks the truth, it’s about who argues the best and if Pussy Riot got a good attorney there is nothing to do. Do you think like me and think they deserve a harsher sentence?
