Pussy Riot ‘buried alive’

MOSCOW (AP) – Two members of the punk provocateur band Pussy Riot have released a new music video dedicated to Eric Garner, an unarmed man who was killed when a New York City police officer put him in a fatal chokehold.

In their video, Maria Alekhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova are dressed in Russian riot police uniforms and shown buried alive.

The song is titled I Can’t Breathe, the last words of Eric Garner captured on video by a bystander.

The two women were detained in 2012 for staging a protest in one of Moscow’s largest cathedrals. They were convicted for extremism, but were released several months short of their two-year sentence in December 2013.
