Volunteer medical science students of the Azad University of Medical Sciences held a protest in front of the regime’s parliament in Tehran, against the uncertainty of their situation, demanding determination of their status.
A large number of volunteer medical science students rose once again on Sunday, January 20, 2019, to demand their rights. This has been one of several protests they have held over the past four months.
One of the volunteer medical science students attending the protest rally said, “The head of the Azad University has left us wandering for more than four months with false promises. The Azad University has received over ten million toumans from 4,000 students but has explicitly refused to accept them.”
Another volunteer medical science students said, “We paid several million toumans for tuition to study in our favorite field. The head of the university cannot play with our destiny.” (The state-run ISNA news agency – January 20, 2019)
