It’s crazy but true: I’m sewing more clothes now that I’m out of prison than I ever did in Putin’s gulag! Big differences are:

2. Festive Colors, not boring drab.

About Nadya Tolokonnikova
For us the Punk Prayer in the Christ the Savior Cathedral is not too important anymore. We are different people now. We lived through a long life in prison; it is a totally different reality from the one you live, and this life, this common experience, unites us now much more than joint participation in the Punk Prayer in the Christ the Savior Cathedral.
Russia is built on the model of a penal colony and that is why it is so important to change the penal colonies today to change Russia. I don’t consider this time wasted. I gained unique experience which will make it easier to really engage in human rights work. I became older, I saw the state from within, I saw this totalitarian machine as it is.

The Real Nadya Tolokonnikova
the future will be less about
and more about our prison reform project
Meanwhile here on iRez, I,

Asylum in Your Embassy,
which has locations on the web and in the virtual world Second Life.
