Riot Days with Maria Alyokhina

In this unmissable event, Conor O’Clery, former Russian correspondent with The Irish Times, discusses Riot Days with Maria Alyokhina which tells the story of her iconoclastic balaclava-clad performance in a Moscow cathedral after which she and two of her collaborators were arrested and sentenced to two years in a prison in the Urals.
Maria Alyokhina will discuss her fight for free speech against the forces of Vladimir Putin’s regime, her hunger strike while in prison, as well as the work she is now doing to help Russian prisoners at home. 'To back down an inch is to give up a mile,’ she says in Riot Days, her account of Pussy Riot’s extraordinary rise to infamy in 2012.
