Such a shame!
The three members of Russian punk band Pussy Riot have been sentenced to TWO years in prison for speaking their mind about Vladimir Putin on the altar of Moscow's Christ the Savior Cathedral.
After already spending six months behind bars, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Maria Alyokhina and Yekaterina Samutsevich were found guilty of hooliganism on Friday.
The world isn't taking the verdict lying down though as activists have named August 17 Pussy Riot Global Day. Protests are scheduled in over 60 cities around the world, in which supporters are wearing the girls' signature ski masks to show solidarity.
Check out pics from the protest outside the Russian Embassy in London (below) to be reminded that there are still plenty of people out there who are fighting for their basic human rights like free speech!
