The website We the People has posted a petition demanding the revocation of U.S. visas for Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Maria Alekhina, Peter Verzilov because of their immoral actions and illegal participation in riots in Ferguson and New York. Here is the text of the petition and the link:
WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:
revoke visas for Tolokonnikova, Alekhina and Verzilov, and prevent them from entering the United States of America
Russian activists from the band "Pussy Riot" - Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, Maria Alekhina, Peter Verzilov - came to U.S. to promote vulgar, immoral, anti-Christian way of life and values. In Russia, they were convicted for shocking, offensive, immoral action in Christ the Savior Cathedral.
Americans respect any position, but the last straw of our patience was participation by Alekhina, Tolokonnikova and Verzilov in illegal protests and riots in Ferguson and New York.
We believe that the participation of foreign citizens in such actions is unacceptable. We Americans will solve our problems by ourselves, without the help of foreigners with an infamous reputation. We demand US authorities to revoke visas for Tolokonnikova, Alekhina and Verzilov, and prevent them from entering the United States
