On Wednesday, December 7, the 83rd day of the nationwide uprising, students across the country staged sit-ins, strikes, and demonstrations and clashed with suppressive forces in some universities. This was despite the extensive security measures by the regime, including the deployment of tens of thousands of Revolutionary Guards and Basij forces in sensitive areas and setting up checkpoints in Tehran and other cities.

Students in Tehran universities, including National, Tarbiat Modares, Khajeh Nasir, Allameh, Psychology, and Chemistry faculties in Tehran University, Dentistry of Azad University, Electricity faculty in Amirkabir, Art and Architecture in Pars, Azad of Sohanak, Central Pardis, and Sureh as well as universities in other cities such as Ferdowsi Universities of Mashhad, Kermanshah Professional Technology, Azad of Mashhad, Rasht and Mahabad, Arts in Isfahan, Shomal in Amol, Azad in Khorasgan, Najaf Abad, Jondishapur of Ahvaz, Kermanshah Medical Sciences staged sit-ins, strikes, and demonstrations.

Protesting students were chanting “Death to Khamenei,” “Death to the oppressor, be it the Shah or the Leader (Khamenei),” “Death to the dictator,” “This year, is a year of sacrifice, Seyyed Ali (Khamenei) will be overthrown,” “Disgraced Basij force is the killer of the people,” “Imprisoned students must be released,” “Death to the regime in its entirety,” “Shame on you (suppressive forces),” “With or without hijab, united march onward the revolution,” “Khamenei! we will bring you down,” “Poverty, corruption, high costs, we will continue until the regime’s overthrow,” “Students are awake, hate tyranny,” “we are the children of workers, we will stay with them” and “We are not scared of guns, tanks, and machine gun.”

In order to prevent the spread of the uprising and the spread of the news of protests, the clerical dictatorship seriously disrupted the Internet today.

Suppressive forces arrested several students in some universities, including Tehran University, Khajeh Nasir, and Ferdowsi in Mashhad. In the universities of Tehran and Amir Kabir and Ferdowsi University of Mashhad, agents of Basij and Herasat (university guard) attacked students with sticks and batons, and there were fierce clashes between the students and the suppressive agents, leaving several injured.

Mrs. Maryam Rajavi, the President-elect of the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) saluted the students who stood up despite the brutal attack of suppressive forces and massive arrests and said that the nationwide uprising of students along with other sections of the Iranian society demonstrates their determination to overthrow the criminal mullahs and establish democracy, justice and people’s sovereignty.
