Students Protesting in Tehran

From an Iranian Student:
I am receiving confirmed reports of protests in Alameh university campus in Tehran, now.

BBC Persian language service confirms the reports and posted a news story in Persian language on this.

A group of students are on strike in Tehran to ask for freedom of expression and release of all political prisoners.

They are protesting against the closure of newspapers, imprisonment of outspoken professors!

They demand support from the free world and the US! They support hunger strike of political prisoners.

There are multiple reports that Security forces have been trying to crush the protest and arrested a few of the leaders of the current protest in the name of action against national security.

The students claimed they want to be peaceful but they are threatened to be sent to prison.

There have been slogans against the regime leaders and judiciary system.

Reports confirmed on , and
