The ruling authoritarian regime is doomed to failure, because it is unable to make reforms. The task of society is to speed up the process of regime change, this was
keynote of the speeches and slogans at a rally of the Public Chamber on the outskirts of Baku, in the courtyard of a driving school in the village of “20th site.”
Leader of “Musavat” Isa Gambar, in his speech said that the people do not support Ilham Aliyev and the power still exists due to the strength of the police regime.
“However, we will win because the people is on our side. People do not support the government, which deprives them of proper education, health and property, ” he said.
“The key to success is the fact that the principle and freedom-loving youth, is actively involved in the national movement. The world community is on the side of those who fight for their rights, for freedom and democracy,” he said.
Arastun Orujlu, head of the Research Center “East-West”, condemned disparaging statement of Ilham Aliyev on the spot, where the opposition rally is taking place, calling it an example of disrespect for their own people and their land.
“But even calling it a worthy place for the opposition, the authorities do not let people here, and prevent their participation in the rally,” he said.
Speeches are interrupted by shouts and chants: “Ilham – resign!”, “Youth to the Square – Ilham to jail,” “We want a normal education”, “No Corruption”, etc.
The rally involved from 5,000 to 10,000. Police restricted the movement of vehicles in the area. Buses going to the area of â€‹â€‹the village â€œ20h siteâ€ are stopped by police and redirected to other places, in order to prevent the arrival of opposition members.contact, Voice of a Nation
