Demonstration in Iranian University


picture taken from Gooya News website

According to Gooya news another Demonstration took place today in Iran's Polytechnic University. They are demanding the release of Keyvan Ansari. The demonstration appears to be peaceful. Students have more demands such as the cessation of control and meddling of the "Herasat" in student's personal lives, etc. According to Gooya news, a photographer was chased after by plainclothes police screaming "thief, thief" and arrested. Later the photographer was released.

It does seem that the protests are here to stay, despite the governments strict penalties for students involved in previous demonstrations. The atmosphere in Iran seems to be changing where last year around this time almost no demonstrations occurred and now small to medium gatherings are now not uncommon.
