Qom University Students Slam Cabinet Spokesperson

In a session scheduled for speech and Q&A, Cabinet Spokesperson Ali Bahadori Jahromi attended Qom University today. However, the students slammed him and his aides with anti-regime slogans, including:

Freedom, freedom, freedom!

Students die but never give in to disgrace!

[The regime] killed our professors, replacing them with mullahs!

[Jahromi is] a liar!

Basij is a mercenary and at the end of the rope!

Disgrace; disgrace!

Remarkably, K. N. Toosi University students forced Jahromi to leave his scheduled session yesterday. They made the pro-regime meeting into an anti-regime demonstration. However, authoritarians are usually too silly and habitually repeat mistakes.

Anti-Regime Protests Going on in Universities

Furthermore, university students resumed anti-regime protests in Tehran, Isfahan, Sabzevar, Ardabil, Shahr-e-Rey, Yazd, Shahrekord, Kerman, Mashhad, Hamedan, Shiraz, Karaj, Ahvaz, and Babol.

Rally in Imam Hossein Square

Meanwhile, in solidarity with university students, dozens of citizens rallied in Imam Hossein Sq, one of the capital’s most crowded centers. Authorities reportedly shut down the doors of Shamsipour university in Damavand St—leading to the square.

In response, citizens blocked the streets, condemning the university officials’ act. “Students, come out,” the crowd chanted.

Citizens Continue Nightly Protests

In addition to university students, citizens and schoolchildren continued anti-regime demonstrations in various cities. Students chanted slogans against Iran’s dictator Khamenei, insisting on following the protests until the end.

“Students die rather than live in infamy,” high schoolgirls chanted in Saqqez.

“Freedom, freedom, freedom,” schoolchildren chanted in Mashhad.

Residents in Sohrevardi St and Sattarkhan district in Tehran chanted, “Death to Khamenei!”
