Free Pussy Riot benefit t-shirts and 2 new donations

Earlier this month, we noticed that a key member of Pussy Riot was wearing a No-Gods-No-Masters t-shirt during their court proceedings (the “No Pasaran” t-shirt). Since the publication of these photos worldwide, the related t-shirt has become our best-selling t-shirt and has generated in 2 weeks more sales that any other t-shirt from our shop was able to achieve in 2 years.

No-Gods-No-Masters.com wants to declare its solidarity with the political prisoners of the band Pussy Riot who are victims of state repression from Putin’s regime. Slowly they have become an icon of freedom of speech but also a symbol of resistance against censorship and repression against anarchists by the powers that be, which is a global problem. Our western media are focusing on Russia while at the same time completely ignoring the exact same problems that are rampant in our own societies. We see in Pussy Riot a symbol of a global problem and a cause to defend : freedom of speech

That’s why the shop has committed itself to give the profit related to Pussy Riot to the organization “Free Pussy Riot”. This solidarity fund helps to pay the lawyers fees related to their legal defense as well as helping to meet their children’s need while Pussy Riot members are jailed.

 

No-Gods-No-Masters.com therefore reiterates it’s willingness to stay a non-profit and non-commercial t-shirt shop which will allow, among other things, to contribute financially to the social equality struggles and the defense of our own comrades which are victims of state repression, as we had already stated previously on our website.

Related to this announcement, No-Gods-No-Masters also announces the opening of a brand new section of Pussy Riot benefit t-shirts

The resulting income from the “Pussy Riot” shirts will be split as follows :
– 50% to the “Free Pussy Riot” organization which will be used to pay legal defense fees and meet Pussy Riot’s children’s needs ;
– 25% to the solidarity fund of comrades arrested at Toronto’s G20 who have been being prosecuted for the last 2 years ;
– 25% to the organization “I give to us” who are helping those activists arrested during the 2012 student protests in Quebec.
