Students have declared that they will continue their struggles until achieving their demands
In continuation of the protest and gathering of the students in Friday in Tehran University, yesterday, Saturday 26th o January, they also continued their gathering and protests. Students were first about 1000 and they gathered in front of the Food Hall of the Kooye Daneshgah. Students, who were increasing, moved to the Gate of the Kooy and around 9 pm they numbered more than 2000. they broke the gate and entered the streets around the kooy, while the counter-insurgency polices patrolled Amirabad (Kargar) street and around Kooye Daneshgah with their motorcycles. Students stoned the police and intervened. Some were beaten up by the police. Some were arrested by they were immediately released and are to go to Security Police tomorrow. Some tried to lean the student’s protests to issues of Elections and the unaccepted nominees.
Based on the Advar News, students had 6 specific demands:
formation of a Charter of Rights for students
an improve in the welfare situation of the Kooye Daneshgah, Tehran
an improve in the food
Reestablishment of the transport services from the hostel to the university and vice versa. These services has recently been separated for boys and girls and also limited. Students want these services to operate from 7 am to 7 pm for boys and until 10 pm for girls
freedom of imprisoned political students
stop of student political and group activists persecution in Disciplinary Committees
Students have declared that until reaching their demands, they will continue to protest and gather from 7 to 10 PM.
While the government does its best to oppress and intimidate the students with a vast wave of arrests and persecutions, and while they hoped that student protests will end at least for a while, recent protests of students in Kooye Daneshgah has already finished this notion of the government.
Communist Youth Organization (CYO) backs the rightful demands of Students of Kooye Daneshgah and calls on all students to join this action. The freedom of imprisoned students and other demands that Students of Kooye Daneshgah have put forward and are serious to achieve them, is the demand of all students and it should be supported by all students in all universities of Iran.
