The journalists were there to cover a demonstration by members of the leading opposition party, Azadlig. A witness said the policemen surrounded the journalists at the end of the demonstration to prevent them leaving. Before hitting them, the first the policemen insulted the journalists as they were photographing and filming the demonstrators, accusing the journalists of acting as publicists for the opposition’s activities.Reporters Without Borders condemns the violence used by police, especially the attack on journalist Mehman Huseynov of the Institute for Freedom and Safety of Journalists, who was badly injured and whose camera was smashed by a policeman. Other journalists were also injured but not as seriously as Huseynov.Reporters Without Borders also condemns the arrests of Ayanda Mursaliyeva (the wife of recently released journalist Ganimat Zahidov), Seymur Haziyev, Natig Gulahmed Oglu, Gan Turali (who, like Oglu, writes for the newspaper Azadlig) and Parviz Hashimli (a reporter for the newspaper Bizim Yol). They were all held for several hours and then released.More than 200 people took part in the demonstration although it was banned by the authorities. It was called by Azadlig and other opposition parties to demand the right to freedom of assembly. The police denied using violence against any of the participants.Reporters Without Borders fears that Azerbaijan could be about to see a resumption of the kind of violence that was frequent in 2006. It therefore urges the government and the police to take all necessary steps to ensure that there is no recurrence of the violence that took place on 26 April.

And this time of year, folks come around asking his advice on how to cook greens of every kind.center_img Next Up“I’ve been growing collard greens and turnip greens as long as I can remember,” Foster said. “I grew up on the farm and we grew what we ate and I’ve been growing greens ever since.”Even today, Foster said he and his wife don’t eat any vegetables that they don’t grow at their place in Shiloh.“Folks put all kinds of fertilizer on their vegetables so you don’t know what you’re eating,” he said. “We make our own fertilizer out of leaves from the pecan and oak trees around the house and add some chicken litter. So, we know what’s making our vegetables grow.” Carroll Foster: the local expert on greens Book Nook to reopen Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Foster specializes in rutabagas and mustard as well as turnips and collards.“As for me, I like rutabagas more than any other greens,” he said. “Other folks would like them too if they tried them. Most folks don’t know that you can cook the rutabaga greens, just like you can cook turnips greens. And, to me, there’s nothing better than rutabagas.”Foster said history plays a big part in what folks cook and how they cook it.“Mostly, women folk cook the way their mamas and their grandmas cooked, so that’s how come we don’t eat as many rutabagas as we do turnips and collards,” he said. “History.” Latest Stories Email the author A little mustard cooked with turnips gives them added flavor, although they don’t need it, Foster said. “Some folks cook a pot of mustard by itself and that’s all right, too, if you like it.”The drought “got” Foster’s collards but he’s has more in the ground and expects to have a big patch of collards before long.“Not in time for Thanksgiving but they should be ready for Christmas,” he said. “Greens are good anytime you can get them.”But not in a can. The taste of fresh greens cannot be “canned,” he said. “Nothing is better than fresh.”When cooking turnips and rutabagas, Foster recommends cutting the greens up “just a little, not like collards” and cooking the greens first.“Cook the greens until they’re about half done and cut up, what we call the roots, and put them in and cook them until they’re done,” he said. “But, if you want greens to be good, you’ve got to season them right.”Seasoning greens right means cooking them with a good end piece of ham or, better still, with a pigtail.“That’s what makes good greens,” Foster said, with a smile.Nothing goes to waste when greens are cooked just right.“When all the greens are out of the pot, you’ve got some of the best broth you ever tasted, pot liquor, that’s what it’s called,” Foster said. “You’ll want to sit down at night to a bowl of pot liquor with cornbread to dunk in it. Talk about good. That’s mighty good.”Foster recommends greens at Thanksgiving. He’s not sure whether the Pilgrims had greens or not but, if they didn’t, they missed something mighty good of that first Thanksgiving.“This is the time of the year for greens, because they’re our history… and they’re good.” Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kitslast_img read more
