Heute ist „16 AZAR“


 So liebe Leute, hiermit beende ich den LiveBlog zum 16 Azar.

Muss schon sagen dass dieser Tag im grossen und ganzen trotz der „erstickenden Atmosphäre“ im Iran schon ein Erfolg für die Studenten bzw grüne Bewegung war.

Wie ich höre, sollen sich iranische Aktivisten auf den kommenden Ashura, das heuer auf den 16. Dezember ( also in 9 Tagen) fällt und den „22 Bahman“ vorbereiten. Man soll sich aber nicht zuviel erhoffen. Solange mit der eigenen ANGST nicht gebrochen wird, solange wird sich auch diese „IR-Schweinerei  hinziehen. Warten wir es ab, was noch alles passieren wird.

Aber eines weis ich mit Sicherheit, dass sie „freudige Überraschung“ jeden Moment kommen kann …

 Letzte Meldung …

The BBC confirms gatherings in protest in Iran today. They confirm all the sites that I have already confirmed plus Elm o San’at Univeristy in Tehran and Tabriz University in Tabriz. Details in a second.

14:26 GMT

I can now also confirm a student protest in Hamedan. Students of Bu-Ali Sina University in Hamedan protested to mark the occasion of Student Day in Iran and in support of student activists who have been arrested since opposition took to streets nearly a year and a half ago.

The students were forced to hold their gathering outside because Basij had seal off the entrance and were already inside the campus holding their own gathering to mark a religious occasion. More details later.

Students: “Mr. Khamenei, Hear Voices of Students Before it is Too Late!”

December 07, 2010


According to the site of Students Online, a group of Sharif University of Technology students sent a message in commemoration of 16 Azar, Student Day: 

“The University is the last fortress for freedom, it is a stronghold that is in the forefront of the struggle against oppression and injustice. This has come to us as sacred and holy from the previous generations. We will defend this until the last drop of our blood, and we shall pass it on to the future generations; know that this triumph is inevitable.”

In this statement there was also a warning to the Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Khamenei:

“Know that we will not step back and we will continue on our quest for freedom. Victory will be the final outcome for the people. Hear the voices of the loyal descendants of this land before it is too late.”

According to Iran News Agency, during the protest at Qazvin Azad University, a number of Basij forces approached the students and suggested to them that they should go to the mosque to have a discussion. But the students refused and said the suggestion was nothing but a ploy to trap them.

So far the number of protesters has exceeded 2,000. The students are furiously shouting “Allah-O Akbar” while the Basij forces are making every attempt to get students inside the mosque.An agent attempted to arrest a student but was prevented by other students as they shouted their slogans even louder and more fierce.

@Manic77 reports:

Security at Tehran University is vetting every student entering and leaving the campus and recording their names. He adds that the university’s perimeter walls have been covered with black banners to hide the interior, presumably and that security vans have lined 16 Azar Avenue where students were expected by some to protest.

Security forces are not letting cars to be parked near the university – even buses aren’t allowed to stop. Visal and Valiasr squares are witnessing heavy security presence as well.

The following video was provided to us by our colleague, James Miller from Dissected News. It is from Danjoonews (Student News) and purported to be taken from Razi University in Kermanshah, just prior to two students being arrested. It shows a gathering in an auditorium that appears to be interrupted when security forces show up. A whistle is heard, then there is some commotion, followed by:

“…let’s go…”
“…Uh oh, uh oh!”

People filter out of the room as nearing the end of the clip the speaker on the microphone says:

“…Albeit, sometimes dictators have their servants who do their dirty work for them

Calm so far in Iran. It’s 9:35 AM in Iran. We have had no news of protests from anywhere in the country, but protests never start until mid day or a little later in the afternoon. The cold might keep protesters inside until the weather is warm enough for them to come out to the streets.

Four statements about Student day from Mir Hossein Mousavi’s Facebook page:

In a message to the students’ gathering at Tehran University that was held on December 6 on the eve of National Student Day and was called “Hope, the loudest of protests”, Seyyed Mohammad Khatami told students: “We should be hopeful. We should try and not be afraid of paying the prices [for our goals] and of course the method that has always been advocated and our students and our reforms are committed to it, is following civic methods and avoiding and rejecting violence committed by anyone; whether by those at power or by those who may have objections and issues. Our path is the peaceful path of civic movement and abiding to the criteria and bases that our nation has had and has expressed in its great revolution.” Khatami also referred to the suffocating atmosphere that the government has imposed on the people, especially the academia and students, and added that the oppression that has been imposed on professors and students is not acceptable for the universities of the Islamic Republic.

 

And,

The Youth and Student branch of the Participation Front issued a statement for the anniversary of the National Student Day (December 7). The statement in part reads: “In this era, the elimination of social sciences, retiring professors, selection of students and academia based on personal preference [of the government], and terminating student activists and barring them from continuing their studies, are not news. Seeing our universities abruptly closed down, our professors retired, our colleagues denied the right to educate and locked in prisons have become a daily occurrence. What happens today in our universities including the termination of professors and protesting students, altering or eliminating sciences that inform human of what is and what must be, and creation of synthetic and dependent student groups, is an effort to theorize the dictatorship and hide the intrinsic contradictions within the ideological packages, which are created under different names with passing and transient use for the crafted and engineered students and social groups.”

Also,

For the anniversary of the National Student Day (December 7), the youths and academia branch of Etemad Melli Party issued a statement. The statement in part reads: “Today we welcome the National Student Day, while many anxious families are awaiting the return of their children to home, and tearful eyes and broken hearts filled with the pain and sorrow of losing their dear children, will cry again and revive the memories of their loved ones.”

And last but not least,

The statement of the Islamic Association of Students of Tehran University and Medical Sciences was read today (December 6) during the “Hope, the loudest of protests” gathering at Tehran University. The statement in part reads: “Seducers are those who step on the constitution. Seducers are those who obliterate justice. Seducers are those who destroy people’s basic rights. Seducers are those who don’t want the parliament to be on top of affairs. Seducers are those who have made telling lies their method of achieving their goals and have sacrificed ethics for gaining power. Seducers are those who consider attacking the residences of Grand Ayatollahs, such as Sanei, Bayat Zanjani, Dastgheib Shirazi, Taheri Esfahani, and Montazeri, acceptable despite all the traditional, religious and moral teachings

0635 GMT: While we will be keeping an eye on any development in the nuclear talks in Geneva, our priority today will be watching any events inside Iran.

It is 16 Azar, National Students Day, and Monday already brought surprising footage of a defiant gathering at Tehran University. We have a snap analysis of what that may mean, and what today may bring, in a separate entry.

And just to give a visual impression:

    Danke für die Berichterstattung über diesen wichtigen Tag. Wenigstens wir wenigen Patrioten werden die Stimme der Studenten nicht ignorieren.

    Saubere Arbeit Wieni. Ich bin schon ganz auf den 22. Bahman gespannt, da letztes Jahr dort die Hölle für die Allahisten losgebrochen ist. Ich denke dass der 22. Bahman ein größerer Erfolg werden wird, weil es sich um einen offiziellen religiösen Tag handelt. Wir werden weiter kämpfen!

    Danke nochmal für diese großartige Arbeit. Die meisten wissen nicht mit wieviel Mühe und Recherche dies verbunden ist.

      Lieber Tangsir, bin bezüglich 22 Bahman etwas vorsichtig, den der letzte „11. Februar“ war eine grosse Entäuschung auf Seiten der Freiheitsbewegung und auch bei mir. Hab ehrlich gesagt wenig Hoffnung, dass sich bald etwas ändern wird. Die ANGST ist einfach zu gross. Manchmal frage ich mir,wer die Schuld hat an dieser iranischen Misere. Die Machthaber oder wir. Wir verfluchen und schimpfen auf die IR, aber trotzdem unterstützen wir (mit unserer Angst) die Machthaber. Denn ohne Angst kännen sie gar nicht existieren. Warten wir ab was passiert. werde jedenfalls weiter berichten …

      • Tangsir sagt:

        Oh nein, zieh dir diesen Schuh nicht an. Hättest du Angst, so würdest du diesen Blog nicht führen und diese klaren Worten gegen die dortigen Machthaber finden. Es ist weniger Angst (Angst ist eine lebenswichtige Funktion), sondern vielmehr das Schweigen vieler die zu dieser Situation führt. Heute wo es das Internet gibt, könnten viel mehr Auslandsiraner ihre Stimme erheben und protestieren und dieser Art Protest ist genauso wirkungsvoll wie auf der Strasse zu demonstrieren.

        Die Mullahs und Allahisten haben aber die Iraner gut gehirngewaschen und viele trauen sich nicht einmal diesen Weg des Protestes zu gehen. Diese Arbeit die wir leisten wird nicht unmittelbar Früchte tragen, aber es hat seine Wirkung. Sie haben nicht alle zum schweigen gebracht und das ist gut so.

        Würde mich sehr freuen, wenn ich mich wegen „22 Bahman“ irren würde
