Don't fall for Jazzerbaijan

Sophie Bridger has an article on Liberal Democrat Voice about the most bizarre item in the programme for next week's Liberal Democrat Conference in Glasgow:
The European Azerbaijan Society will be holding their traditional jazz evening on Sunday, yet this organisation backs the Azerbaijani government that arrests, tortures and jails political activists and human rights campaigners. In Glasgow, activists go to conference. In Azerbaijan, they go to prison.
I have signed her petition saying the Lib Dems shouldn't take money from organisations backing dictatorships and human rights abusing regimes. I hope you will too.

More about the Azerbaijani regime's attempt to blind Western opinion to its real nature in a post of mine about Mike Hancock.
