Russian Protestor – level 2
Pyotr Pavlensky is a Russian protestor known for his unusual performances. In July 2012, he sewed up his lips to protest the arrest of the band Pussy Riot. Then he wrapped himself up naked in barbed wire, and he also nailed his private parts in Moscow’s Red Square.
In Russia, police jailed him for six months for setting fire to a government building, and then he moved to France. There, Pavlensky set on fire two windows of a bank in Paris. He then calmly stood in front of the building until police arrested him.
