Show Trials And Protests in Iran.
I have been meaning to blog on the Show Trials going on in Tehran, but haven’t found the time, so in the interim here’s some information about Iranian students protesting against the theocratic regime:
“TEHRAN — Police fired tear gas on Monday at Iranian protesters gathered in central Tehran chanting slogans against President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, witnesses said, as the nation marked Students Day.
The clashes came as a group of Iranian students issued a call for mass protests against Ahmadinejad to coincide with the annual event.
“Police fired tear gas at groups of protesters chanting slogans against President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in Vali Asr intersection and Enghelab Street,” a witness told AFP, referring to prominent locations in central Tehran.
The protesters were chanting “Death to the Dictator” and “Do not be scared. We are all together,” the witness said, adding that some protesters also beat up a policeman.”
