How convenient
: The mullahs are shutting down Tehran University’s campus from July 7-14, which just so conveniently carries it over the crucial date of July 9 and its planned demonstrations.

    Wouldn’t that make the city the background for the demonstrations rather than the university?

    Hey all Tehran University students!!.
    Since you aren’t going to classes anyway on the 9th, why don’t you come out and demonstrate with the rest of us?

    That’s a very astute observation. There are literally thousands of spots to demonstrate. One can take a cue from the protesters in San Francisco several months ago and figure out good spots.

    In the US, when the University types want to gin up a demonstration (against, say, liberating Iraq), the first thing they do is cancel classes. So in Iran, when some fathead mullah wants to squash a demonstration, the first thing he does is . . . cancel classes? Seems to me the mullahs would be better off scheduling exams.
