Tehran, Iran, May 06 – Students in Tehran’s Polytechnic University staged a protest on campus on Sunday, eye-witnesses told Iran Focus in a telephone interview.

The protest erupted outside the main entrance of the university.

“Jailed students must be freed”, the students chanted. “Ansar, get lost”, they added, referring to Ansar-e Hezbollah, a paramilitary force that acts as the clerical regime’s storm troopers to put down anti-government demonstrations and instil terror in members of the public. Iranian officials have conceded in the past that the Ansar-e Hezbollah has been organised and led by close confidants of the Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, such as Ayatollah Ahmad Jannati.

The student protest took place as hard-line vigilantes loyal to the Supreme Leader arrived on campus and began a counter demonstration. “Un-Islamic students must be executed”, the vigilantes yelled.

Meanwhile, the student protestors called for the expulsion of the university’s chancellor and an end to the government-sponsored crackdown on student rights activists.

Polytechnic University – also known as Amir Kabir University – has been a hotbed of anti-government demonstrations in recent months.
