The demonstration will be accompanied by live music and the songs will be dedicated to human rights and public problems.
On 2 November, the forum will apply to the Baku Executive Power in order to receive permission to hold a demonstration in the Ukrainian Square in Baku on 9 December from 2.00pm to 5.00pm. Political parties and the opposition representatives will be invited.
