Original Source (in Persian):  Azad University of Qazvin News

Payvand.com - Once again, the students at Qazvin's Azad University turned the grounds of the university campus into a protest arena against the regime. On December 7, the Student Day, despite the intense security measures put in place by the authorities, the students held a huge rally followed by a march. It is estimated that about 5,000 students participated in the protests.

 

During the rally, the students who were carrying photos of the Amir Javadifar and Ashkan Sohrabi (two students martyred since June's presidential elections) were chanting slogans against the regime and expressing their despise of the coup government and their supporters.

It should be noted that few days before the protests, the university's security office had issued an announcement forbidding any gathering and threatened to take disciplinary actions.  Also, during the protests, security and plainclothes agents were busy identifying the students.
