Protest in Azerbaijan
News is always happening around the world. However, due to resource limitations, news organizations aren’t always able to cover everything. But with the advent of citizen journalism, ordinary people can step in and help fill the gaps, whether it’s in countries that have been heavy in the news like Iran, or ones not quite on the radar like this photo in Azerbaijan.
Your View contributor Abbas Atilay captured a dramatic moment during a protest for free parliament elections in Baku, the capital city of Azerbaijan, a country located in the Caucus mountains region in Asia. There is determination both in the face of the protester and in the faces of the police who’re arresting him.
