Pussy Riot and friends have released a new single protesting police brutality. Watch.

Pussy Riot has lent its voice to the protests following the dead of George Floyd. They got together with Argentinian artists Parcas, Dillom and Muerejoven for this new single entitled “1312.”

The initial inspiration for the song came from some protests in Chile last year, but given what’s happening in the US right now, it’s entirely applicable.

Pussy Riot’s statement:  “Their goals should be to help people to deal with social and economical problems, not to punish them and kill for no reason, as they just killed George Floyd in the US. The government and the police are our servants. Too often they forget about it and think that it’s us who’re here to serve them”.
