Burial Theater

It's a bit tough to blog these days with all these things going through my mind. Nevertheless the pro-democracy students at Amir Kabir technical university in Tehran staged an anti-regime demonstration. 75-90 students reportedly detained of which 35-45 are female students. The main reason to stage this demo was to protest against the burial of the so called 1980s war dead. Reports indicated that 1500-2000 students were present. I am reading a lot of independent media outlets in Persian language and as of this posting the campus siege has not been lifted.

Photos are here and here. There is a video of the demonstration.

Update: Azarmehr has more.
