Tehran, Oct. 12 – Students from Lorestan University resumed a hunger strike in protest to lack of rights of expression. The students had originally started their hunger strike last Saturday but then suspended it when local government officials promised to resolve outstanding issues. Following an announcement by an official of the regime in the Iranian province of Lorestan that students no longer have a right to vote on major reforms in their universities, angry and frustrated students have recommenced a general hunger strike in protest.

No timeline has been announced and it is unknown how long the students plan to continue the strike.

The deputy head of the student union of Lorestan University stated “Muslim students of the agricultural department of Lorestan University have once again gone on hunger strike.”

Students claim that 25 other academic unions from universities across Iran have announced their support for the protesters.
