Dear Mr President
I am writing to you in order to protest against the treatment of students at Allameh Tabatabai Communication Sciences and Sociology College in Tehran. Students from this College were subjected to attacks by the College security guards, uniformed and plain-clothes security offers, as well as basiji elements. The violence, many arrests, and the detention of Arman Sedaghati and Maziar Samiee, were your government’s response to the students’ peaceful protest for the following basic democratic demands: – To protest against the severe sentences passed against three Amir Kabir University student activists; – the barring of a number of students from that university and other universities in Tehran from their studies; – the sacking of independent lecturers; – the permanent or temporary banning of students’ independent journals and creating a police atmosphere at universities. I therefore believe that Arman Sedaghati and Maziar Samiee should be released immediately and without any conditions. The Iranian government should also meet all the above demands. I look forward to hearing about your positive intervention in this regard in the international media.
