Another Ahmadinejad speech turns into embarrassment

11 May 2010

According to the Jaras opposition website, at least 1000 students at the university of Shahid Beheshti in Tehran have staged protests at their university’s main square after learning about president Ahmadinejad’s unannounced visit to the university.
The protesters chanted slogans in praise of opposition leaders Mir-Hossein Mousavi and Mehdi Karroubi and against Ahmadinejad, calling him a “dictator” and a “murderer of the nation.” Other chants called for the “coup government” to “resign.” There was a tight security presence at the university where six buses and a great number of government vehicles entered the university yesterday. Students at Shahid Beheshti University quickly gathered in front of the literature faculty after hearing about the news and marched towards the main square in greater numbers.
As the number of protesting students grew, around ten Basijis as well as the university’s security attempted to block the protesters and prevent them from disrupting Ahmadinejad’s speech. Their confrontation led to clashes between the two groups and subsequent injuries among students.
The only people being allowed inside the lecture hall were individuals who had been brought to the university on buses. A similar incident took place on International Labour Day when Ahmadinejad’s planned speech at Tehran University turned into an embarrassment when student’s learned about his sudden and unexpected appearance in campus.
