MADISON, Wis. - Members of the Moscow-based band Pussy Riot are calling on Wisconsin Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen to dismiss cases against protesters arrested for singing in the Capitol building.

Protesters have sung in the Capitol rotunda nearly every day since 2011. The singing started during massive protests against Gov. Scott Walker's plan to take away collective bargaining rights for public workers.

Pussy Riot has gained notoriety for its protests against oppressive rule by the Russian government. Members of the group have spent time in jail on several occasions, most recently during the winter Olympics in Russia.

A Van Hollen spokeswoman didn't immediately return requests for comment.
