Thousands of Iranian students protest against the Islamic Republic in Tehran
Thousands of Iranian students protested against the Islamic Republic in Tehran on Wednesday, December 6th - which is "Students Day" in Iran. Yet again the western media went silent; all they can discuss is arguments for and against the Islamic Republic's nuclear programme - Iranian lives do not matter to politicians of England, Germany, France, USA etc. it seems. Yet again Iranians put their lives in danger to protest against the barbaric system occupying their country for 27 years and yet again there is no word of it in the western press. If you are a freedom loving human being please pass around the word of these demonstrations in Iran and these pictures. If the Main-Stream-Media will not report this WE WILL! We need to give a clear picture of the situation/environment in Iran to western publics; not the distorted and often one-sided propaganda the MSM reports.
Estimates put the participation of students at anywhere from 2000-4000, and the security forces well above 1000 personnel; this includes the regular police force which were outnumbered by the Islamist vigilantees (Basij) who are used by the regime to suppress any dissent through maximum violent and savage force.
Slogans of "Death to the Islamic Republic" written on placards were raised across the campus premises in an unprecedented action by a restive population under brutal Islamic occupation. Students are becoming more and more daring their struggle against the Islamic forces controlling their country for 27 years now. The Iranian population is a ticking bomb waiting to explode in the face of the terrorist establishment ruling them.
There were reports of small skirmishes between the Islamic Republic's security forces and Iranian students. The students were prevented by the large security presence to leave campus premises and by doing so were prevented from spreading the protest action further than the area around the university campus of Tehran University. The Islamic Republic knows that if students break through the security presence and into the streets of Tehran all HELL will break loose upon their oppressive rule and their dictatorship will be threatened.
By letting the students protest solely on the university premises the Islamic Republic protects its dictatorship. But for how long? None the less during protests the Islamic Republic's agents films and takes pictures of student leaders who will afterwards be follow any of the following consequences: detained, expelled from universtiy, imprisoned, tortured, or killed!
