Youth Groups Action - May 2016: Free Khadija Ismayilova

Free Khadija Ismayilova

Khadija Ismayilova, an award-winning investigative journalist and outspoken government critic in Azerbaijan, has been locked up by the authorities for exposing corruption. She is a prisoner of conscience and must be released immediately. 

We are asking groups to:

  • Write to the President of Azerbaijan asking for the release of Khadija

  • Send Khadija and her mother messages of support

  • Write to the media around the time of the Azerbaijan Grand Prix in June

  • Organise a creative stunt 

We are also encouraging youth groups to think of a creative angle to this campaign using a Grand Prix/Racing car theme.
