Security forces responded with a heavy security deployment, and at least eight arrests, according to the student website Daneshjoo. Official media didn't cover the protests or report any arrests.

They have lost the support of their youth. They must have forgotten to institute the teachings of Karl Marx in their schools and universities. When the old guard is gone, the new Iran will be a better, happier, more prosperous nation.

Our current regime will not give the students any support because it is on the other side.
