Melissa_Ys tweets that a protest demonstration in support of detained video bloggers Adnan Hajizade and Emin Milli is set to take place outside the Embassy of the Republic of Azerbaijan in Washington DC tomorrow at 4pm [1]. The two youth activists have so far spent 51 days in pre-trial detention and now face an additional charge [2] in what many consider to be a politically motivated attempt to silence their voices.
