Oh no!!!

For the two members of Pussy Riot still in a Russian prison, things are about to get a lot worse and much much colder!!

Band members Nadya Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina are being transferred from their current places of confinement to Siberian prison camps in Mordovia and Perm, respectively!

What!?

Prison camps!? That's outrageous!!

Apparently these harsh, freezing Soviet-era places of incarceration

Lil Wayne Release Final Statement From Prison

lil wayne releases final statement from prison

Lil Wayne's had a rough ride at Riker's, but he's kept an impressively positive attitude!

Here's a final letter that Weezy has released to his fans from prison:

“Hello world. Time is ticking and I’m counting every second. Because of my new limitations, this unfortunately has to be my last letter. I don’t think people truly understand how much their thoughts and well wishes have helped me through this time in my life. Not everyone is as lucky as I am and it humbles me daily. You would be amazed what positivity can do in a negative environment. I’m going to miss reading about your lives. I’m going to miss looking at the pictures. They were the highlight of my days aside from speaking with my kids. Don’t stress over this in 27 days, the ride starts again.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who is supporting I Am Not A Human Being. It amazes me each time people go out and support my music. I’ll always be in debt to you for that. Keep rocking your “Free Weezy” tees and rocking out to my music. Trust me when I say this is almost over. I love you. I’ll continue to pray for all of you. Just keep doing the same for me.” -WEEZY

Surprisingly inspiring and heartfelt stuff, Weezy!

We wish U the best of luck with your final weeks at Riker's, bb!

What do U think of Lil Wayne's final statement from prison?

Cuban Leaders Accuse U.S.A. Of Blackmail, Oppressive Regime Feels The Heat!

Filed under: PolitikSad Sad

A group of protestors in the island have launched a hunger strike in opposition of Cuba's treatment of political prisoners, leading one to starve to death and another to be hospitalized.

Although it's gotten so bad that the USA and Europe have attempted to intervene and force President Raul Castro to release political prisoners, the island nation's leaders are not pleased and have accused the outside politicians of blackmail!

In a nationally televised speech, Castro asserted:

"We will never give in to blackmail, from any country or group of countries, no matter how powerful."

He continued on to claim the members of the hunger strike are criminals being paid by enemy governments in an attempt to destabilize their country.

We think anyone who would be willing to lose their life fighting for a cause would have to truly believe in it, which throws out the conspiracy theory excuse Cuba's political leaders are clinging to!

We sincerely hope this issue is resolved before any one else suffers another day.
