KARATE WORLD CHAMPION
BECOMES CAUCASUS WHITE RIBBON AMBASSADOR

FIZULI MUSAYEV, world and European karate champion has been appointed as a WHITE RIBBON AMBASSADOR during the 2002 CAUCASUS 16 DAYS Campaign.

The first White Ribbon Ambassador from Azerbaijan Fizuli Musayev, joins other well-known men of the Caucasus, such as Rezo Gabriadze, the Georgian national rugby team, Lelo and Bidzina Gegidze, Gia Bugadze, Dato Evgenidze, Duta Skhirtladze, Kakhi Kavsadze, Kote Kubaneishvili, Bakuri Burduli - all of whom have accepted invitations to become White Ribbon Ambassadors.

The White Ribbon Campaign is the largest effort, in the world, of men working to end violence against women. Canadian men following the 'Montreal massacre' of 14 female students - murdered because they wanted to become engineers, established it. By introducing the White Ribbon Campaign to the region in the framework of the CAUCASUS 16 DAYS of activism against gender violence, WomenAid International aims to support and encourage men and women in all regions of the Caucasus to work to end all forms of violence.

Fizuli Musayev undertook his first ambassadorial task when he spoke on anti-violence philosophy at the Azerbaijan country presentation of the WHO World Report on Violence and Health held on Saturday December 7, 2002 at Grand Hotel Europe, Baku.
