The Third Anniversary of the 18th or Tir: A Victory for the Students of Iran

On the occasion of the third anniversary of the 18th of Tir, the people of Iran from different walks of life united in favor of the students of Iran. The 18th of Tir marks the third anniversary of the brutal assault on unarmed, freedom-loving students in the Tehran Dormitory by the hands of the bloodthirsty Islamic authorities.

Despite the numerous threats from the Islamic regime and the inability to acquire permission for the demonstration, the young Iranians stood defiant and marched the streets, giving anti-regime slogans and calling for the immediate and unconditional release of all captive students and political prisoners.

This year’s 18th of Tir demonstration stood as a tremendous historic event as even some members of the Islamic Revolutionary Guards had surrender in favor of the students. In order to portray authority, Islamic authorities shot off gunfire, wounding many and a couple demonstrators facing fatality. These shootings posed no threat to the demonstrators. The young Iranians bravely risked their lives in support of the captive students of Iran and in the name of freedom and democracy.

What wave of spirit can bring such bravery amongst the demonstrators where in the presence of guns they march defiantly? The love for freedom and justice has grown so strong amongst Iranians that no guns or weapons can stand in the way of the freedom-loving movement in Iran.

We the students called for the Iranian peoples’ support for the 18th of Tir and they answered positively. The link between the students, the teachers, the workers and the Iranian people has grown entirely powerful. The day of failure is coming near for the Islamic regime. The spring of freedom is coming near for the people of Iran.

We call for the immediate and unconditional release of all captive students and political prisoners. We call for a national referendum in regards to the existence of the Velayat-e Faghih. We call for the establishment of a secular and democratic government based on popular vote. These are the demands of the Third Force. Forever will our demands remain alive in opposition to the face of evil.

Long Live Freedom – Bring the Establishment of Democracy – Down with Dictatorship
