Should the members of pussy riot be considered political prisoners?

  • Those arrested for expressing political views are political prisoners

    Pussy Riot was arrested on charges not directly stated as being related to politics, but in all truthfulness, they were arrested because of their expression of views that did not align with the anti-homosexual movement in Russia. They should absolutely be treated as political prisoners because they were arrested for demonstrating against a political ideal.

  • For what they sacrificed

    They should be considered political pioneers for standing up for what they believe in and then paying the price. They went to jail for over a year for just simply expressing their viewpoints. They were also attacked during the Olympics. They would probably be considered bigger political pioneers if their music was better. Maybe the will get better and the world will take more notice.

  • Yes, members of pussy riot should be considered political prisoners.

    I definitely think that the members of pussy riot should be considered political prisoners. I think that a lot of them were unfairly imprisoned and treated due to their beliefs and principles. But I do think that the Russian police will continue to enforce their strict rules should they protest again.

  • Yes they should.

    The members of pussy riot should be considered political prisoners. They were put in prison because they decided to speak out against the government and they wanted to express their views. This is the exact definition of what constitutes someone being held as a political prisoner and pussy riot should be treated as such.

  • They are political prisoners.

    Well, the main reason they were considered to be political prisoners is that they were political prisoners. Russia isn't very tolerant of dissenting opinion, in case you haven't noticed. It's also not exactly great about women's rights. So you had a group of women speaking out in a high profile way against Vladimir Putin and bam, they got tossed in prison. Therefore, political prisoners.
