Today is "Students Day" in Iran, and thousands demonstrated this morning in universities across the country. Below are pictures taken at Tehran University where the crowd was estimated at several thousand.

Some of the signs read, "Death to Dictatorship", "Death to Islamic Republic", "Students For Workers", "We have nothing to lose to defend freedom", "Free political prisoners now", "Boycott the sham elections".

Police and many more vigilantes (basij) were on hand to control the crowds.

This is what happens when citizens don't have guns.

Who do you think they would point them at if they had guns?

Lots of red there...these guys look like Marxists. Hate to say it, but I'd rather have these guys in charge than the current despots.

Good, keep up the pressure and show the world what your leaders are up to.

Hard to "show the world" when the MSM ignores the story

FOX had it on this afternoon along with an Iranian woman who complained that these stories are never told.

Building False Hope of regime change. Each delay buys Iran time to finish an atomic bomb. Each delay, they hope, delays the destruction of their centrifuge cascades.

Looks like there is more pro-American sentiment there than in the US State Department...

Yup.

From the slogans, that's what it sounds like.

It's a win-win for the Rooskies and ChiComs either way.

Agreed. A peaceful, non-islamic-dictatorship country looks more probable than I had thought. Still a long way to kicking the wackos out thought.

It is proof that they are free, at least to a certain degree - or they woudn't be marching.
