Shiraz University has been the scene for numerous student demonstrations in the past year, which has led to the students being targeted by the Islamic Regime, being suspended, expelled, summoned to disciplinary committees and the Ministry of Intelligence.

On December 6th 2008 Mr. Mohsen Zarin Kamar, a Shiraz University Student made an unforgettable speech in the presence of Ali Larijani (Speaker of the Parliament) where he told Ali Larijani, that he has no questions for him as the speaker of the Parliament, because he sees him as the speaker of an illegitimate and an illegal parliament. Mr. Zarin Kamar further stated “I hate three things, first I hate Mahmoud Ahmadinejad...”

Because of his speech Mr. Zarin Kamar has been suspended from University for two terms. Further, according to a report from Human Rights and Democracy Activists in Iran Mr. Zarin Kamar along with three (3) other students Mr. AbdolJalil Rezayi, Kazem Rezzayi and Mr. Loghman Ghadiri Gotapeh have been summoned to the Ministry of Intelligence in the City of Shiraz. These students have been charged with acting against national security and insulting Regime Officials. At least 13 other students have been suspended and summoned to disciplinary committee in the University.

The crackdown on Shiraz University Students has taken a turn for the worst, and although the Regime has used the Student Day (December 6th) Demonstrations as an excuse for this crackdown, there might be more to it...
