The teachers who were carrying placards condemning the existing discrimination and huge amount of incentives given to the regime's MPs warned of a radicalisation of their mouvement.

Already several academic districts are in partial strike since last Saturday despite severe injunctions made by the Intelliegence circles. Tracts distributed in schools are asking from students to back their spiritual fathers and mothers in the revendication of their legitimate aspirations.

Several teachers are still in prison and two were killed following the teachers demo which took place in year 2000 while the UN Secretary General visited Iran and qualified it as becoming democratic.
