More Iranian Students Protest Ahmadinejad

These kids are living on borrowed time.
The headline says that these protests are “rare”, but that is blatantly false. Mahmoud has been having a lot of trouble with students protesting him the past several years, and he has responded harshly.
An estimated 100 students staged a rare demonstration Monday against Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, calling him a “dictator” and scuffling with hardline students at Tehran University.
Ahmadinejad, who was giving a speech to a select group at the university to mark the beginning of the academic year, ignored the chants of “death to the dictator” and continued with his speech on the merits of science and the pitfalls of Western-style democracy, witnesses said.
The protesters scuffled with hardline students who were chanting “thank you president” while police looked on from outside the university gates. The protesters dispersed after the car carrying Ahmadinejad left the campus.
Given that several students have been arrested in recent years for this same act … these students must now look over their shoulder.
