Supporting Pussy Riot
Roskilde Festival donated 40 000 Danish crowns to Zona Prava - a Russian non-profit organisation founded by Maria and Nadezhda to improve the condition and human rights of prisoners. Festival spokesman Christina Bilde welcome the following: ”Roskilde Festival is non-profit, and we have a decade-long tradition of focusing on human rights. So it is natural that the festival supports the two activists and their work with a donation. We’re also happy that Nadya and Masha from Pussy Riot have chosen to accept our invitation and visit Roskilde Festival. They have gained some personal experiences in being deprived of their artistic freedom and civil rights. This is something that can be hard to understand in a safe society like Denmark, and it gives us all the more reason to draw attention to the seriousness of the situation outside our national borders.”
