Iran Protesters Demand Khamenei Quit, ‘Death To Liars’

Swarms of Iranian student activists at Amir-Kabir University in Tehran protested against the country’s Revolutionary Guards (IRGC) Friday and Saturday over the regime’s downing of a Ukrainian commercial airliner according to various reports.

Of the 176 who perished in the plane crash as a result of the Islamic Republic’s actions, many of the fatalities were students and faculty of Iranian descent from the University of Alberta in Edmonton.

International Correspondent for the Independent, Borzou Daragahi posted a video on Twitter showing students confronting the IRGC and chanting, “Resignation is not enough. Prosecution is necessary.”

In another Tweet of Daragahi says the students are chanting at security forces, “Clerics must get lost.”

Other journalists covering Iran have tweeted out similar video including Masih AlineJad who tweeted student protests happening against the Islamic Republic at Tehran’s Sharif University as well.

The Iranian government conceded Friday its military was responsible for shooting down the Ukrainian commercial jet.

Iranian foreign minister Mohamad Javad Zarif on twitter sent out condolences saying,  “profound regrets, apologies and condolences,” however he shifted blame to the U.S., alluding to President Trump’s earlier decision this week to send a deadly drone strike after IRGC commander Qassem Soleimani.

Zarif wrote, “Human error at time of crisis caused by US adventurism led to disaster.”
