More than 2000 students of Tehran University gathered on Wednesday to commemorate the students day and protest against the regime. Students Day has always been a strong excuse for students to get together and show their anger. Police and Islamic vigilantes kept a very close eye on the students Gooya News reports, and for hours they prevented other students to join the students gathering inside the Tehran Uni. campus.
The banners read: "Death to Dictatorship", "Students For Workers", "We have nothing to lose to defend freedom", "Students & Workers, Unity Unity", "Free political prisoners now", "Boycotte the sham elections".
