A group of students at the Tehran University of Art gathered in protest to call for the removal of university president Saeed Kashan Fallah.

The Rooz-e No website reports that the protesters are calling for the return of professors, an end to the high-security atmosphere in the university, and freedom of activity for student organizations and newspapers.

In a letter to Science and Technology Minister Reza Faraji Dana, the students have called for a ministry committee to investigate the state of their university and elect a new president.
