December 7th marks the National Student Day in Iran. The student movement is a power to be reckoned with and has been for many years. Students in Iran have been actively and consistently fighting against the Islamic Regime for many years.
We all remember the pro-democracy student demonstrations in July of 1999 which shook the Islamic Regime to the core, as well as countless anti-regime protests and demonstrations we have witnessed since 1999. The students have been very active and very involved in asking for a secular/ non religious, free and democratic government in Iran. As a result the number of arrests, imprisonment, torture and rape of students has increased over the years.
Today I am commemorating 16 Azar, the National Student Day in Iran, and am dedicating this post to all brave Iranian students who are relentlessly fighting for a secular and democratic Iran, and specifically to Akbar Mohammadi and Behrouz Javid Tehrani, two symbols of strength and resistance against the Regime in Iran.
Down with the Islamic Regime in Iran
Long Live Freedom in Iran
