(ANSA) - Venice, August 29 - Protesters supporting the
imprisoned members of the Russian punk band Pussy Riot descended
on the Russian pavilion at the Venice Biennale Wednesday.
Hundreds of demonstrators wearing colored masks gathered
in the gardens surrounding the pavilion carrying banners and
chanting.
Protest organizers said that they would also gather at
Venice's film festival later in the day.
Members of the all female band hit international headlines
after their arrest in July for singing a 'punk prayer' in an
Orthodox church in Moscow asking the Virgin Mary to rid Russia
of Putin.
The case has attracted support from music industry
legends, including pop veteran Madonna, who urged a concert
crowd to pray for their release in Moscow earlier this month.
