'Don't let them be silenced'

This is a video prepared by Amnesty International as part of its new report on Azerbaijan (you can also read the following post here on the report and the report itself). 

Amnesty's YouTube channel posted this video on its page with the following description:
The spring that never blossomed: Freedom suppressed in Azerbaijan, details a wave of intimidation and arrests around protests against corruption and the increasing suppression of independent media, non-governmantal organizations (NGOs) and opposition parties. 
Since then, youth activists and opposition figures have been jailed on arbitrary or trumped up charges while journalists and human rights defenders have been threatened and harassed.
You can access the video either through AI's official YouTube page or watch it here.
