Icelandic actor, comedian, politician and Mayor of Reykjavík Jon Gnarr showed his support of the Pussy Riot ladies at Reykjavík pride parade this past weekend.  Gnarr rode through the streets of the Icelandic capital on a float that read "FREE PUSSY RIOT" clad in a pink dress and a balaclava mask, in solidarity with the provocative protest band that protested the Orthodox Church's support of Vladimir Putin.  This was prior to the verdict on Friday of two years in prison for each band member, on "hooliganism" charges.  Gnarr, like his fellow countrywoman Bjork, stands in support of Pussy Riot's activism and against this violation of the rights to freedom of expression.
