Saffar Harandi, deputy commander of the Iranian regime’s Revolutionary Guards Corps, on Sunday.
Free-Iran- Monday, 02 November 2009 - Students prevented him from speaking at the podium by chanting “Our shame, our shame is our Culture Minister,” “Death to dictator,” “Mercenary get lost,” “Guns, tanks and Bassij force can no longer stop us” and “With God’s help victory is close, death to deceitful government” and forced him to leave the university.
Agents of the regime’s Ministry of Intelligence at the University – filmed students’ protest in order to harass them and identify the activists, but students continued their act by turning their backs to the cameras and protested against the regime’s agents.
Harandi reacted to the students by calling them “Illiterates,” “dictators” and “rude” and they responded by hurling shoes at him and chanting anti-regime slogans.
As protests continued, he was forced to leave the hall. Beatings and insults of students by his security forces provoked more protests which spread to university premises.
In solidarity with students in universities across the country and in protest against suppression of political and student activists, students at this university also staged protests on October 27, 28 and 31.
Harandi also faced students’ protest at Tehran University’s Technical school two weeks ago. They chanted “Killer get out” in their protest and hurled shoes at him.
