One of the most brilliant and inspiring things Ive read in years. Couldnt put it down. This book is freedom Chris Kraus, author of I Love Dick

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 doesnt just teach you to follow the rules. It teaches you to think that you can never break them.

Its inevitable that the prison gates will open at some point. But this doesnt 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.

We are all Pussy Riot.
And actions break fear.

To Back Down an Inch is to Give Up a Mile.
