Emin and Adnan need your support

My last post was on a protest in Washington, DC to take place on Friday on behalf of Azeri bloggers. Today RFE/RL reports that Emin Milli and Adnan Hadji-zadeh remain in prison and have now been charged with assault on top of the hooliganism charge.

These young men were assaulted in a restaurant earlier this summer. They reported the incident and instead of finding justice, they themselves were arrested for hooliganism. If you can, please show your support for their release this Friday in front of the Azerbaijani embassy in DC.

I know it's not much, but my support for all jailed bloggers, journalists, and youth activists in the region (so many and a ridiculously fast-growing list) in the form of a haiku:

Journalists, bloggers / Brightly illuminating / From dark prison cells.


Thank you Ern, and Thank you, Ani!
