Azerbaijan: Twitter Action for Jabbar Savalan

Following a Twitter campaign by Amnesty International calling for the release of imprisoned journalist Eynulla Fatullayev, the international human rights watchdog has launched another in support of a young Facebook activist in Azerbaijan who was jailed in May. The earlier action was followed by Fatullayev's release just days later and the organization hopes that the same will be true for Jabbar Savalan. More details of the online action which will coincide with the 20th anniversary of the country's independence from the former Soviet Union can be found here.
