Student protests in Iran

The Express Chronicle
April 23, 2001

[23:35; 23.04] Tehran, IRAN. About 7000 people demonstrated in front of the gates to Tehran University on April 22 in protest against the recent arrests of Iranian student movement leaders.

The Student Movement Coordinating Committee for Democracy in Iran (SMCCDI) reported that several demonstrators were arrested by security agents, who surrounded the neighborhood around the university.

Security agents and members of Bassidj volunteer militia took up position in several middle schools in Tehran to prevent the students from leaving. According to a release from SMCCDI, at the Marvi secondary school, clashes took place between the students and armed militia members.

The Tehran student action was supported by several hundred students from the Some-e Sara University in Guilan in northern Iran. They refused to attend classes on April 22 and gathered at the entrance to the university for a meeting to demand the immediate of all Iranian political prisoners.

Heshmatollah Tabarzadi, leader of the United Student Front, arrested on April 16 at a meeting of that organization in Tehran, has begun a hunger strike in protest at the prison in Karadj. The United Student Front of Iran supports a national referendum on the political future of the country.
