NCRI - On Sunday, Iranian students in universities across Iran staged demonstrations, chanting anti-government slogans and calling for the release of the detained students.
At Tehran University, the protesters chanted slogans against Ahmadinejad and carried banners calling for the release of three fellow students who have been held since May, the state-run media such as Fars news agency and IRNA reported.
"The students marched on the gate and damaged it... The students chanted slogans and carried protesting placards," IRNA reported. According to the eyewitnesses, Iran's State Security Forces (SSF) had initially shut the main gate to prevent large numbers gathering for the protest, but the students broke the gate so that others could enter.
