Members of the Azerbaijani diaspora in the United Kingdom held a rally in London on the occasion of Azerbaijan's Independence Day on October 18. The marchers also protested against the killing of civilians, including women and children, and the destruction of civilian objects as a result of the repeated shelling of Ganja, the second largest city in Azerbaijan, far from the frontline of the occupying Armenian army.
The participants of the rally, moving in cars with the tricolor flag of Azerbaijan, drew the public's attention to the shelling of civilians in cities and regions far from the front line, including Ganja and Mingachevir with heavy artillery. The car race consisting of 50 cars started near Trent Park in London and ended in an area called Standon.
It should be noted that, the Armenian army, violating humanitarian ceasefire, fired rockets at Ganja, Azerbaijan's second largest city, outside the frontline zone of Azerbaijan on October 11 and on October 17, 2020. As a result of both rocket attacks by the occupying Armenian army, apartment buildings in the central part of Ganja were destroyed, civilian facilities were severely damaged, 23 people were killed, 83 civilians were seriously injured and the city was severely damaged.
