A few minutes ago worrying news reached us from Evin prison on the very critical condition of Abbas Hakimzadeh and Ahmad Ghosabian. According to this report, yesterday, after the students of [the Tehran Polytechnic] were chanting slogans like “Down with the dictator” and “Down with despotism”, they became faced with the brutal reaction of the security forces.
According to this report Ahmad Ghosabian has concussion and is in a very critical condition and Abbas Hakimzadeh is in a coma following a blow to his temple.
Down with despotism!
Long live liberty!
