“Letters to political prisoners marathon”
Amnesty International
On 9 December, Amnesty International  in Netherlands organized a “Marathon for writing letters to political prisoners” and letters demanding their release.

December 9, 2017 there are 161 political prisoners in Azerbaijan.

Speaking at the opening of the Marathon, we presented detailed information on political repressions in authoritarian Azerbaijan.
