Opposition party intends to hold sanctioned protest actions

The opposition Whole Azerbaijan Popular Front Party (WAPFP) has
postponed the picket it originally intended to hold outside the
Turkish embassy on Tuesday.

The picket comes as a protest against the Armenian parliamentarians’
planned participation in the 58th “Rose Roth” seminar of the NATO
Parliamentary Assembly due in Baku in November.

Commenting on the matter, the WAPFP press spokesman told AssA-Irada
that the party intends to continue sanctioned protest actions.
WAPFP has organized more than 10 unsanctioned actions in protest
against the planned visits by Armenian officers and parliament members
to Baku so far.

The WAPFP Managerial Board in its recent meeting decided to sue the
Mayor’s Office of Baku for violating the party members’ rights for
free gatherings.*

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
