Students fight closures with sit-in and protests

On Sunday 31st October the government announced the dissolution of Iran’s University of Medical Sciences. After the massive shock, student have organised protests with growing militancy and numbers. They have taken part in a sit in protest in opposition to the closures. Whilst some students will be able to attend Tehran’s Medical Science faculty, many will not have spaces. The attack on medical students is similar to those taking place against humanities students in a clear and organised attempt to undermine the politicisation of students in Tehran.
