A student at Shiraz University refused to ask visiting speaker of parliament and former nuclear negotiator Ali Larijani a question because, “I don’t accept you as the legitimate speaker or the parliament as legitimate.”
The student continued, ” I hate three things. One, I hate [President] Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Two, I hate him for his hypocrisy…” The video becomes a bit incomprehensible as students for and against the government start chanting, so we don’t know what the third reason is. Throughout the scene, Larijani remained quiet and calm.
Despite censorship, Iranian students were able to use Youtube to increase the visibility of their protests.
