The trial of Pussy Riot
I posted this on the day three young women, two of them mothers, were jailed in a Russian penal colony for two years for singing an anti-Putin punk prayer to Mary in church. I quoted from the Magnificat. Would that Christianity were driven by those revolutionary words written as being spoken at Jesus’ quickening and taking central place within the canon of Gospels.

  1. I like your tribute to Nelson Mandela . A true and admirable leader. The tri-colour abstraction below seems to me to be prophetic – dark clouds gathering until the issue of land and wealth redistribution is addressed …

    • Thanks Mari. I like your spontaneous news-driven etchings also.
      The tricolour was the flag of the African National Congress. I well remember that scene and those storm clouds, not many miles from where he now lies buried.
