Students’ Sit-in Protest in Tehran
On Monday 21st February a group of students from Tehran University had a sit-in protest in defence of political prisoners as well as in response to the lack of political freedom and the harsh treatment of intellectuals and lecturers of the Alameh Tabatabi University by the judiciary. ATU is one of the three major universities in Tehran set up after the cultural revolution in early 80s.
In an interview with Radio Farda Amir Pakzad, a student activist in Tehran, said that in the past couple of years, following the crack down of the students’ movement, there has been a general feeling of political apathy and disappointment among the students.
He believes this move can be seen as a new spark that if continued could help the students’ movement to take off again.
