HRANA – Despite exams and increased security measures intended to intimidate students, the “green students” of Tehran University were successful in organizing a protest that drew hundreds of students on Monday June 14, 2010.
According to the students, about 100 students began protesting in front of the main door for the university’s technical school and their numbers grew quickly.
