'May Iran Shut Down Evin University Forever'

By Golnaz Esfandiari, RFE/RL

"Evin University," known to the outside world as Evin prison.

Blogger Chahar Divari (Four Walls, a reference to the privacy of home) hopes that one day "Evin University" will be shut down. 

Protester sign says: "Evin Prison is admitting students"

In recent years, critics have come to attach that nickname to Tehran's Evin prison because of all the student activists, journalists, and intellectuals who've spent time there.

We shouldn't be unfair, [Iranian officials] have kept their promise in this regard. There are professors in there, students; and it's the hangout of artists and thinkers. It has a great pluralistic atmosphere when it comes to thinking. 

I wish there'd be another cultural revolution and they would shut down [Evin University] forever.
