Zona Prava

“The degree of civilization in a society can be judged by entering its prisons.”
— Fyodor Dostoyevsky

Zona Prava (Zone of Rights) was founded by Pussy Riot members Nadya Tolokonnikova and Masha Alekhina upon their December 2013 release from prison in Russia. The goal of Zona Prava is to aid those who may be deprived of liberty in camps and prisons, but are not willing to be stripped of their dignity.

Zona Prava gives support to those who are ready and willing to fight for their rights. The organization provides information, legal representation, safety monitoring, advocacy and oversight.

“We begin with the camps, but are convinced that if we help the convicted to find a legal manner to protest their enslavement, if we can give a voice to what is now the most disenfranchised social group, we will make a great step towards ensuring that we all find our voice, and learn to defend our opinions and our rights.”
