Tehran University Students Hold Gathering: The Aroma Of The Greenest Season Is In The Air

Islamic Association of the Students of Tehran University, after getting the necessary permission, held a gathering in the school of Engineering for the Student Day on December 14, after a week delay.

This gathering, titled Swear to every moment of these Red days that the aroma of the Greenest season is in the air, was held under heavy security measures and in protest to the brutal crackdown of the students and insulting the dignity of the university in several events, entering of the forces from outside of the university into the campus and clashes with students; as well as to request for the resignation of Farhad Rahbar the chancellor of Tehran University, and protesting to the restrictions and security environment enforced on the society after the election.

The students by holding pictures of Imam Khomeini protested to the recent move by the government in which the footage showing the tearing up of Imam Khomeini's picture was broadcasted on the state-run TV and the Green students were accused of committing this act. The students and the opposition movement have condemned this suspicious act which they say has been done in order to make it an excuse for harsher crackdowns and putting more pressure on the leaders of the Green movement.

The students also condemned the security, judiciary and disciplinary confrontations with the intellectuals and scholars of the country. In this gathering some prominent reformist figures gave talks. Former President Seyyed Mohammad Khatami, one of the key opposition leaders, could not personally attend the gathering for security reasons, but he sent a video message to the students.
