Opinion | How Azerbaijan’s media ignores anti-queer violence

The media’s silence in the face of a surge of anti-queer violence is nothing less than complicity with it. 

Opinion | Who are the feminists in Azerbaijan?

We must distinguish feminists from those who say they advocate for equality but reject the ‘f-word’. 

Fierce, independent journalism

Let’s be honest, the media situation in the Caucasus is grim. Every day we are accused of ‘serving the enemy’ whoever that enemy may be. Our journalists have been harassed, arrested, beaten, and exiled. But nevertheless, we persevere. For us this is a labour of love. Unfortunately, we cannot run OC Media on love alone, journalism is expensive and funding is scarce. Our sole mission is to serve the interests of all peoples of the region. Support us today and join us in the fight for a better Caucasus.
