Iranian students mark Day 44 of the uprising
Iranian students targeted Ali Khamenei, the mullahs’ supreme leader, and his IRGC for slaughtering innocent pilgrims in Shacheraq, Shiraz, on Wednesday evening, October 26. The regime blamed the mass shooting in Shacheraq, which reportedly left 15 dead and 27 wounded, on Daesh (ISIS). However, Iranian students chanted, “Bassiji, Daesh, congratulations on your wedding.”
Students of the all-female Az-Zahra University chanted, “Daesh is the same as IRGC; these are thread-bare schemes.”
Students at Tehran University’s Technical Faculty chanted, “The blood in our veins is for the blood-thirsty leader,” “IRGC and (Khamenei) are perpetrators of all crimes,” or “Shacheraq is another deceptive scheme.”
As this report is being published, the regime’s IRGC troops and special guards have surrounded the Technical Faculty building in Tehran and the Azad University of Mashhad. They do not let the students come out. Locals have rushed to these universities to help release the students imprisoned inside the universities.
