Pussy Riot avtozak (paddy wagon) kite - a flying message
- rachel8, CNN iReport producer
On 17 August, a worldwide Pussy Riot battle took place. We invited all Pussy Riot supporters to join the art action "Paddy wagon (avtozak) to the air – Pussy Riot home!" at Lukiskiu square in Vilnius at 1 pm and fly together a paddy wagon (avtozak) kite to the air with the help of colorful heli balloons-balaclavas.
The municipality has given their permission for the action. They also didn't mind if we let the kite fly away where the wind blows. But police reminded us not to be in balaclavas, only for a short time to take pictures, there is a banning law for masks in Lithuania.
Before the rain started Pussy Riot avtozak (paddy wagon) could fly to Belarus or straight to God. Lukashenko would be furious after "teddy bear" case, and God would be puzzled where to forward it first - to the judge Syrova and Chamovnichesky court, Gundiajev or straight to Putin.
