New Pussy Riot Video Slams Oil

The new video and song from Russia’s punk activists, Pussy Riot, is an anti-oil tirade titled Like A Red Prison.  The song likens Vladimir Putin to an Iranian ayatollah, takes swipes at Igor Sechin and Gerard Depardieu, namedrops Alexei Navalny, and takes aim against homophobia and sexism.
Evildoers at the oil towers,
Oil on the tables,
Sechin with crocodiles,
Like in a red prison.

Pussy Riot’s official website has the full lyrics, apparently composed by original member Nadezhda Tolokonnikova whilst in prison: ‘so you have to learn it by heart with special accuracy‘.
