Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, a member of the Russian punk group Pussy Riot, says she will begin a hunger strike in prison to protest harsh working conditions and threats on her life, the Associated Press reports. Tolokonnikova, who is serving a two-year sentence for hooliganism, is one of three members of the group arrested last year for an impromptu performance in Moscow’s main cathedral lambasting President Vladimir Putin.
