Written by Hamid Alizadeh Wednesday, 17 December 2014

shariatmadari-protestHossein Shariatmadari, the powerful editor of the Iranian right-wing daily Keyhan, was disrupted time and time again as he tried to speak at Tehran University on 13 December. The hundreds of students gathered in the call would interrupt him with slogans such as "Leave, interrogator!", "Keyhan, Israel congratulations on your unity", "Death to reaction" "Shame on you, liar, leave the university".

Written by John Peterson Monday, 15 December 2014
