Regime's suppressive forces attack 3,000-strong demonstration of students at Tehran's Elm-o San'at University

Clashes erupted between the Guards Corps and suppressive forces and several thousand students who had staged a large gathering at Tehran's Elm-o San'at University (Science and Industry University) yesterday to protest the regime's suppressive measures and presence of agents of Intelligence Ministry, Guards Corps and Bassij on campus.

More than 3,000 protesters chanted, "death to despotism" and "free all political prisoners."

Shortly after the protest began, members of the Bassij and Revolutionary Guards, posing as the Students' Bassij, attacked the crowd with clubs and knuckle-dusters. Clashes continued from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. and a number of students were arrested.

The Elm-o San'at is one of the biggest universities in Tehran.
