Tehran, Dec. 3 – Heavy clashes erupted between Iran’s State Security Forces (SSF) and students from the University of Qazvin (western Iran), after SSF agents raided university buildings and attempted to bring to an end a hunger strike that had been organized in protest to poor university conditions.

Students defied official warnings of a crackdown on protesting students. University windows were broken and some buildings were damaged in the clashes.

Last Tuesday as part of the ongoing hunger strike, students wrote the word ‘etesab’, meaning ‘strike’, on the floor of the main university canteen using their food trays.

No word has come about the fate of students who were arrested during the ensuing mayhem.

The university campus is presently under siege with local residents reporting that in the past few days, faculty staff have not been permitted to leave the university even during nighttime.
