Student Day (Iran) (Wikipedia)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Student Day (Persian: روز دانشجو) is the anniversary of the murder of three students of University of Tehran on December 7, 1953 (16 Azar 1332 in the Iranian calendar) by Iranian police in the Pahlavi era.[1] Every year there are local demonstrations at many universities organised by students. The government also organises a national demonstration which sometimes clashes with student organised protests.

It is commemorated both by religious and secular student movements. Ahmad Ghandchi who belonged to Jebhe-e Melli and two other students, Shariat-Razavi and Bozorg-Nia who were claimed by Hezb-e Tudeh, were killed when the police forces opened fire on the students of University of Tehran going on strike in protest at Nixon’s visit to Iran, following the coup d’état of 1953.[2]

On the anniversary of Student Day in 2009, large student protests broke out in opposition to the 2009 Iranian Presidential election. See: Timeline of the 2009 Iranian election protests#December 7.
