Students at Tehran's Shahid Beheshti University Protest Ahmadinejad's Visit

Mahmoud Ahmadinejad made an unannounced visit to Shahid Beheshti University in Tehran on Monday May 10. This was welcomed by protests from students of this university.


Students were chanting:

  • "O Hossein, Mir Hossein" (declaring their support for the opposition leader Mir Hossein Mousavi
  • "Student would rather die than give in to disgrace"
  • "Brave students, support! Support!" and
  • "Where is your 63%?" (referring to the widely disputed outcome of the presidential election in which Ahmadinejad claims to have received 63% of the votes!).

This protest  happened under heavy security presence and despite the fact that the students who have participated in such gatherings in the past have faced disciplinary measures and some have even been arrested and imprisoned.
