In fear of what might happen

Last night five youth members of opposition parties were arrested on the premises of hooliganism- opposing fellow police officers that were there to arrest them. These are only the few of the youth demanding national mourning day for the tragic events at the State Oil Academy on April 30th and cancellation of the flower day on May 10th (tomorrow).

Each of the arrested boys were given a sentence- from 3 to 10 days of imprisonment. For further information on the names please see the following link (in Azerbaijani):

It seems like all the plans for celebration are underway- passing by the park around midnight the night before I saw people working at the park, preparing for the celebrations. 15 mn manats were spent for this day but only 30,000 manats given to the families who lost their children in the shooting at the State Oil Academy.
