Image In solidarity with the jailed protestors of Russia's Pussy Riot, Anti-Flag has recorded a cover of their "punk prayer" called "Virgin Mary, Redeem us of Putin." The lyrics probably didn't do much to endear the feminist collective to the Russian leader:

The head of the KGB, their chief saint, Leads protesters to prison under escort
In order not to offend His Holiness Women must give birth and love
The Church's praise of rotten dictators The cross-bearer procession of black limousines
A teacher-preacher will meet you at school Go to class - bring him money!
Virgin Mary, Mother of God, put Putin away



The protestors have earned much support from around the world. There was a benefit in Brooklyn, moves of support from European leaders, and a strong statement from European Women's Lobby.
