Iran Press News: Translation by Banafsheh Zand-Bonazzi
According to reports from the regime-run media outlet, ISNA, The Fine Arts students have now entered into day 3 of their sit-in. They are protesting the issuance of suspension of two university terms of two of the fellow classmates. Despite the growing numbers of supporters and the repeated demands of the students, so far none of the university's authorities have come forth to address the issue.

One of the protesting students said: "None of the university authorities have come to speak to the protestors instead they've called our families demanding that they come and take us home! This protest will continue until we are given an appropriate explanation."
