  • Yesterday we reported that Masha Alyokhina and Nadya Tolokonnikova of Pussy Riot were guests on Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report, and last night, the Russian feminist collective announced the girls are no longer members. In an open letter posted on Livejournal, the anonymous members stated, “Yes, we lost two friends, two ideological fellow members, but the world has acquired two brave, interesting, controversial human rights defenders. We appreciate their choice and sincerely wish them well in their new career.” [Pitchfork]
