MOSCOW — Two members of the punk provocateur band Pussy Riot have released a new music video dedicated to Eric Garner, an unarmed man who was killed when a New York City police officer put him in a fatal chokehold.
In their video, Maria Alekhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova are dressed in Russian riot police uniforms and shown buried alive. The song is titled "I Can't Breathe," the last words of Eric Garner captured on video by a bystander.
The two women were detained in 2012 for staging a protest in one of Moscow's largest cathedrals. They were convicted for extremism, but were released several months short of their two-year sentence in Dec. 2013.
