  • From activist, Pussy Riot member and freedom fighter Maria Alyokhina, a raw, hallucinatory, passionate account of her arrest, trial and imprisonment in Siberian jail for standing up for what she believed in.

    People who believe in freedom and democracy think it will exist forever.

    That is a mistake. What happened in Russia – what happened to me – could happen anywhere.

    When I was jailed for political protest, I learned that prison doesn't just teach you to follow the rules. It teaches you to think that you can never break them.

    It's inevitable that the prison gates will open at some point. But this doesn't mean that you leave the 'prisoner' category and go straight into the category of 'the free'.

    Freedom does not exist unless you fight for it every day.

    This is the story about how I made a choice.
