January 12, 2013 – Large Unsanctioned Protest Against Death of Military Conscripts – Several hundred to a thousand people gathered in central Baku for an unsanctioned
protest against the deaths and mistreatment of military conscripts. The protest was sparked by the release of photographs of Ceyhun Qubadov, a conscript whose death from viagra without prescription sales hazing was covered up by the military. The protest was unprecedented in size (considering its central location and the fact that it was unsanctioned) and involved a wide variety of people and political organizations. The protest was organized through the Facebook page “Əsgər ölümlərinə SON” (END soldiers’ deaths). Twenty-nine (29) protesters were fined for violating public order and there were no arrests. In a further show of unity in Azerbaijan, activists successfully and quickly gathered money through the “5 Gepik” (5 cent) Campaign (Facebook page) to pay the fines of several participants in the protest.
