Iranian Students Will Not Be Deterred From Protests

The begining of the end for the Shah of Iran in the late 1970's was the ongoing protests by huge numbers of students. What started as open defiance against the American backed dictator spread throughout the nation and ultimately led to the Islamic revolution that threw the Shah out of power.

Is it too much to hope that we may be seeing a similar situation in Iran with the courageous university students who are in open defiance towards the current Iranian leader, President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad?

The students’ complaints largely mirrored public frustrations over the President’s crackdown on civil liberties, his blundering economic policies and his harsh oratory against the West, which they fear will isolate the country.
