Activists call for renewed protests to mark student-led uprising of July 1999

Tehran, June 28 – Pro-democracy activists in Tehran have written graffiti, urging people to stage protests to mark the anniversary of the 9 July 1999 student-led uprising.
In Javadieh and Tehran Pars districts, as well as in Naqdi, Jashnvareh, Abdollahi, Park-e Shahrak, Sajjadieh and Hashemi streets, there were political slogans on the walls, including “Death to Khamenei” (Iran’s Supreme Leader) and “9 July is on the way”.

9 July marks the 11th anniversary of the start of a student-led uprising across Iran which broke out after members of the hard-line Bassij militia and Ansar-e Hezbollah, a paramilitary force that acts as the clerical regime’s storm troopers, raided a dormitory in Tehran University and attacked the students there. One student was killed when he was thrown out of the window in the raid on the university dorm. The ensuing nationwide protests that erupted came as a shock to Iran’s clerical leaders and lasted for over a week.
