Madonna told the audience, “I’ve always considered myself a freedom fighter since the early ’80s when I realized I had a voice and I could sing more than songs about being a material girl or feeling like a virgin. And I have definitely paid for and have been punished for speaking my mind and for sticking my neck out for this kind of discrimination. But that’s OK.”

Alekhina and Tolokonnikova added, “Freedom is not a given. It is something we have to fight for every day. It is our duty to speak for those who are still behind bars.”

The three members of Pussy Riot were sentenced to two years in prison after performing a satirical punk song in a Moscow church against Russian President Vladimir Putin.
