Since the first Poets for Pussy Riot event, held on August 29th, Nadezha Tokolonnikova and Maria Alyokhina remain in pri­son, ser­ving out sen­tences in noto­rious penal colo­nies. The com­mu­ni­ty of poets that came toge­ther then, as an act of soli­da­ri­ty and com­mit­ment that this injus­tice should not be for­got­ten, will come toge­ther once more on November 21st, in asso­cia­tion with English PEN, to mark the nine-month anni­ver­sa­ry of Pussy Riot's pro­test Punk Prayer per­for­mance, which took place on February 21st in Moscow's Cathedral of Christ the Saviour. Please join near­ly 40 poets from London for a eve­ning of ori­gi­nal poe­try that will be one of a num­ber events taking place across the UK and Ireland to raise local and natio­nal awa­re­ness of Pussy Riot’s situa­tion. http://​www​.engli​sh​pen​.org/​c​a​t​e​c​h​i​s​m​-​p​o​e​m​s​-​f​o​r​-​p​u​s​s​y​-​r​i​o​t​-​l​i​ve/
