Students from four universities in Tehran have released statements in support of the Women, Life, Freedom protests and to mark the anniversary of Mahsa Amini's death.

In the statements, students from Science and Technology University, Amir Kabir, Beheshti and Khajeh Nasir Toosi Universities underlined that the women's rights protests signify a "public outpouring of frustration against the Islamic Republic."

Students have been at the forefront of protests since the death in morality police custody of 22-year-old Mahsa Amini, with many students arrested and barred from continuing their studies for speaking out against the regime and refusing to wear mandatory hijab on campus.

Students at the Beheshti University reaffirmed their unwavering commitment to the cause, emphasizing their resolute support for resistance despite witnessing violence and hostility.

Students from Science and Technology University recalled the events of the past year when "innocent blood was shed, and our patience was tested," leading to a unified call for justice for Mahsa whose killers have still not been brought to justice. The regime claims she died of a pre-existing condition, but scans revealed she had suffered fatal blows to the head.

AmirKabir University of Technology students explicitly stated their opposition to various forces undermining freedom, such as “the Supreme Leader, the IRGC, paramilitary organizations, monarchy, the Mujahedin-e Khalq, centralization, and any form of tyranny or totalitarianism.”

Meanwhile, students from Khajeh Nasir Toosi University of Technology voiced their support, declaring their challenge to the system.
