Tehran, Iran, Oct. 17 – Some 500 students in Tehran’s Amir-Kabir University held a protest on Monday against the takeover of universities by Islamist groups affiliated to the Revolutionary Guards. These include the paramilitary Bassij Daneshjui and Jihad Daneshgahi. They also demanded the release of a fellow student activist.

“Political prisoners must be freed”, students chanted during the hour-long protest on campus.

“The Bassij association [inside universities”> must be shut down”, they chanted, as they criticised the atmosphere of repression on campus.

The student protesters called for the release of Keyvan Ansari, a former student leader at Amir-Kabir who is currently languishing in an Iranian jail. Ansari was arrested more than three weeks ago.
