Long Live Pussy Riot! 3/24 - 60 Minutes Interview with Yaketerina Samutsevich

CBS' 60 Minutes' Lesley Stahl interviews Yekaterina Samutsevich, a member of the punk-feminist protest group Pussy Riot, who was one member of three (arrested--others escaped arrest) released after serving a little over seven months in prison and indicted with a trumped up 'hooliganism' charge following their act of protest against the Vladimir Putin dictatorship inside Moscow's Cathedral Of Christ The Savior Orthodox church.  Two other women, Nadezhda Tolokonnikova and Maria Alyokhina, are still serving time (separated from eachother) in two of Russia's harshest condition prisons.  Stahl was also able to interview a member of PR still in hiding; the band still practices!  There are still other members of the group involved!  Here is to hoping that the girls make it out soon (alive) and don't give up hope on their dreams for freedom and individual rights under a Russian [leader]ship that seems to be making it up as they go along; it sounds as though the movement is still bubbling under the surface.  Let's open the conversation on this video: what did you think about Lesley's interview?  What would you have asked that you think Lesley missed the point of view on?

You can still help the girls while they are spending the remainder of their sentence in prison by raising funds to make sure that they receive the proper care:
