Students Vocally Protest Ahmadinejad


Iranian opposition websites are reporting that a number of students at Tehran University on May 1 protested against Iranian President Mahmud Ahmadinejad, who was visiting the university to attend a ceremony.

The opposition website "Jaras" reported that "several hundred" students protested against the Iranian president and chanted slogans. The students were reportedly not allowed in the hall where Ahmadinejad was giving a speech.

The above video is reportedly from the protest. The students are chanting "Shame on you dictator, leave the university alone."

Here is another video, reportedly from the same protest, where students are chanting "Students, Workers, Unity, Unity."

And another where students are chanting, "The blood in our veins belongs to our nation."
