Madonna's statement on Pussy Riot conviction

'I protest the conviction and sentencing of Pussy Riot to a penal colony for two years for a 40 second performance extolling their political opinions. Even if one disagrees with the location or how they chose to express themselves, the sentence is too harsh and in fact is inhumane.
I call on all those who love freedom to condemn this unjust punishment. I urge artists around the world to speak up in protest against this travesty. They've spent enough time in jail. I call on ALL of Russia to let Pussy Riot go free.'

This is such an awful thing to happen for a 40 second cry for help. Much like eating an apple for Adam and Eve. Two years is sooo long. Must be a shame when some rioters who don't have money or lawyers can't just fly out to the next leg. Does anyone ever listen or is it just a waste of Madonna's and other celeb's time? Can the Pope help?
