Protesters In Tehran Chant Against Supreme Leader To Resign Over Plane Downing

Hundreds of students and others protest in front of Tehran's Amir Kabir and Shirf universities this afternoon (January 11) against the regime's deception of the public about the Ukrainian airliner that the Revolutionary Guard shot down on Wednesday.

The rally was called by students of the university yesterday who said in a statement they were going to mourn the victims of the plane crash and light candles for them.

Among the victims of the plane crash there were 26 alumni of various Iranian universities.

Videos posted on the social media show protesters chanting slogans such as "Liers, liers", "So many years of crime, down with Supreme Leader, "Shame on Revolutionary Guard, Leave the country alone" and "Down with dictator".

The videos show a number of security forces on motorcycles among the protesters who are angrily shouting "scoundrel" at them. Another video shows protesters in front of Sharif Technical University demanding Khamenei step down as the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces.

The Iranian regime for three days kept the public in the dark about the real reason for the crash of a Ukrainian airliner that killed all 167 onboard, claiming "technical failure" was responsible for the tragedy. Earlier this morning the Armed Forces General Headquarters issued a statement and accepted that as suspected by many the plane had been targeted by an Iranian missile.

A student activist in a tweet from the scene says tear gas has been fired at the crowd who are chanting: "Don't call me a seditionist, ُyou are the sedition itself, the tyrant".
