Azerbaijan activist in detention for a month for Harlem Shake video

One month ago today, Azerbaijani youth activist Ilkin Rustemzade was arrested on politically motivated hooliganism charges in connection with a Harlem Shake video filmed in Baku. Rustemzade is one of more than 80 political prisoners in Azerbaijan.

Art for Democracy, ARTICLE 19, and Index on Censorship staged a protest, making their own Harlem Shake video to call for the release of political prisoners in Azerbaijan.
