Jailed Russian punk band gaining support in Brooklyn
The Russian punk band Pussy Riot is gaining support in Brooklyn after the three members were each sentenced to two years in prison on hooliganism charges after a controversial song.
The band was charged after singing a song criticizing Russian President Vladimir Putin in the country's most famous Orthodox church.
The arrest and sentence has sparked protests from Moscow to Times Square.
Many celebrities including Paul McCartney and Madonna have protested the Russian court's decision.
The lawyers for the band say they are planning to appeal the sentence.
