Students from high schools and universities hold rallies on the 23rd day of Iran’s uprising

Students at Tehran's Khajeh Nassir University chanted, "This is no longer a protest; it is the start of a revolution!".

The 23rd day of protests in Iran continued, with rallies held in various cities by high school and university students.

In Karaj, students chanted, “I will kill whoever killed my sister!” in reference to Mahsa Amini, the young woman who died in the morality police’s custody on September 16. She was in a coma for three days after guidance patrols hit her with baton blows to the head. Her skull was fractured, and she had a stroke.

Young girls marched in the streets and chanted anti-regime slogans in Mahsa Amini’s hometown of Saqqez and Marivan, Iranian Kurdistan. High school students in Sanandaj, Kurdistan’s capital, also went on strike in support of their fellow imprisoned teachers.



Shiraz high school students also held a rally, chanting, “Khamenei will be deposed this year!” They stomped on images of the mullahs’ supreme leaders, Khamenei and Khomeini, from their textbooks.

Students at Tehran’s Khajeh Nassir University chanted, “This is no longer a protest; it is the start of a revolution!” Protesters included students from Tehran University’s School of Management, Melli, Az-Zahra, and Science and Industry universities in Tehran, Imam Reza and Ferdowsi universities in Mashhad, the Medical Schools of Gilan, Tabriz, Zanjan, and Bushehr universities, the Noshirvani University in Babol, and the universities of Sanandaj, Qom, Yazd, Semnan, Isfahan, and Urmia.



Gilan University medical students held placards demanding their right to freedom as well as the release of their classmates. “Ambulances are for carrying the sick,” one of their placards said, referring to the Iranian regime’s use of ambulances to transport arrested protesters to prison.

The shops are closed as a result of the bloody crackdown on worshipers in Zahedan, the capital of Sistan and Baluchestan province, last Friday, September 30, 2022. In solidarity with the nationwide protests, their owners are on strike.

Isfahan shopkeepers and farmers joined in by closing their doors and marching through the streets.
