July 8th (18 Tir) Iranian Students Uprising Against the Mullahs' Regime
July 8th (18 Tir Persian calendar) is the anniversary of the student uprising that ended in bloodshed in 1999. Every year students commemorate this day. This year, there is a special commemoration. Iranians inside Iran are organising widespread demonstrations across the country in all major cities. The people of Iran need the support of the international community in their uprising against the dictatorial Islamic regime.
Update 1 : Behrooz Javid Tehrani, the last remaining imprisoned student of 1999 uprising in the regime's dungeons has issued a statement in which he calls Iranians to finish the job they started 9 years ago. (It's in Farsi)
Update 2: Ahmad Batebi, one of the brave students arrested and imprisoned in 1999 has escaped the regime's dungeons after bearing nine years of torture and is now safe in America. I always worried about Ahmad. Thank goodness he is safe now. We love Ahmad Batebi:
"I wish each and every Iranian could travel abroad, come to the U.S. or go to Europe, for just one week, and feel, smell, and breathe freedom, human dignity, and realize the value of their lives."
