Protests Still Going Strong

From Mir Hossein Mousavi’s Facebook Page:

Today (Oct. 20, 2009) for the fourth consecutive week , more than thousand students of Tehran’s Azad University held a protest despite the very tight security environment and the presence of the Basij and plain cloths militia who were even brought to… the university from outside. Students were chanting “Ya Hossein, Mir Hossein, “Death to dictator” and other Green slogans in support for the Green leaders and in protest to the coup government.

Students of Tehran University protested Safar-Harandi, the former minister of Islamic Culture in Ahmadinejad’s administration, by chanting slogans like “Murderer get out” and “Death to dictator”. Safar-Harandi was invited to Tehran University by Basij to give a talk when many students protested to his presence which made him very angry. According to MowjCamp a brave student threw his shoe at Safar-Harandi to resemble what happened to George Bush (which ironically was promoted by Ahmadinejad’s administration!) to show if Bush was hated in Iraq so are the coup administration and its allies in their own country.(19 Oct 2009)
