Two members of punk band Pussy Riot have released a new music video dedicated to Eric Garner, the unarmed man who was killed when a New York City police officer put him in a chokehold.

In their video, Maria Alekhina and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova are dressed in Russian riot police uniforms and shown buried alive.

The song is called I Can’t Breathe, the last words of Eric Garner captured on video by a bystander.

The two women were detained in 2012 for staging a protest in one of Moscow’s largest cathedrals.

They were convicted for extremism but released several months short of their two-year sentence in December 2013.
