Tehran University students protest as Ahmadinejad makes unannounced visit


Today (May 1st) students of Tehran University protested to the unannounced presence of Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in their university. Based on this report Ahmadinejad went to Tehran University without any prior announcement and gave a talk for the National Teacher's Day (May 2nd). As soon as the students were informed, they held a gathering and protested to Ahmadinejad's presence in their university.

Reportedly the security forces had heavy presence on campus and did not allow the students in the hall where Ahmadinejad was giving a talk and they tried to scatter the students but were not successful.

According to the report only the Basiji and some selected pro-government students and faculty members were informed about this event and were allowed to enter the hall where Ahmadinejad was giving a talk.


Students outside the hall were chanting slogans such as "Shame on this deceptive government" , "Ahmadinejad shame on you, leave the university" , "Death to the dictator" , "O Hossein, Mir Hossein" , "Viva Mousavi, Viva Karroubi" and " the dictator must know that he will fall soon".

It is noteworthy to mention that following the widely disputed June 2009 presidential elections and the widespread protests especially among the students to the fraud in election, Ahmadinejad had not entered the university and his unannounced presence on Worker's Day which was also very short is interesting.
