Continuing to Not Comment
Over the weekend, I did a poor job of keeping up with the breaking news of yet another weekend of stymied protests in Baku. I’ve made this post before, twice. The opposition parties here petitioned for permission to protest, but were denied again. RFE/RL has an article here. Sky News posted an article and a slideshow here (note picture 3 of 13…that guy looks like trouble). Even Bloomberg put in a blurb about the stifled protests. From watching videos and looking at the pictures, it appears that this is yet another case of a protest where the actual protesters are outnumbered by police, plain-clothes police, and the press. And it looks like those police arrested some members of the press, as well.
