There are confirmed reports from inside of Iran about students protesting in and around the University of Tehran, mainly at Kuy-e-Daneshgah where famous protests against the regime were held in July of 1999 and June & July of 2003.
This can be a very important moment. I really think these guys need massive support right now to be able to achieve some thing, at least if we expect the change to come from inside of Iran.
A blogger says there are about 2000 students clashing with the security officers in western parts of Tehran where their campus is located. Many were detained, 40 police officers injured and 200 students wounded. He says, it started by a group of 20-30 students and then more people joined the crowd.
Another blogger reports on the ground in Persian language
These kids can't do much if they are not supported.
IRNA (regime's news agency) runs a report on this event

I have already posted some pictures of demonstrations and I hope to spread the word as much as I can. Major media outlets must pick such stories but they always don't because they are clueless about the oppression Iranians live under these days.

Students of Zanjan University and Orumiya University in west of Iran, have also joined the protests according to confirmed reports from inside of the country, that is what I learned about through phone calls I made to friends inside of Iran.
