Iran Protests Continue for Third Consecutive Day
Tehran Sharif University Protests - 13 January
Nationwide Uprising, No. 7
Call for international action to free arrested students and protesters
Students at Iran’s Sharif Industrial University continued their protests for the third consecutive day on Monday noon. The protesters expressed outrage and anger at the clerical regime and chanted, “Death to Dictator,” “Grief, grief is with us today – brave students are grieving today,” "Cannons, tanks, firecrackers, mullahs must get lost," and “They killed our best and put mullahs in their place.”
The religious fascism is trying to stem the tide of protests and demonstrations with various suppressive measures. The suppressive security forces attacked protesters with batons and fired tear gas, used live fire, and wounded many. Many students and protesters were arrested in Tehran, Karaj, Mashhad, Zanjan, Babol, Rasht, Gorgan, Tabriz, Kermanshah, and Kashan.
