  • Description

    Some 300 Iranian students staged an antimonarchist demonstration in Rome on Wednesday (7 May).

    Their faces masked with paper for fear of reprisals, the students marched on the Iranian Embassy, where they distributed a manifesto in which they complained of "the bloody Pahlevi regime which has assassinated nine patriots".

    The manifesto criticised the proclamation of a one-party state in Iran and said the Shah's government was carrying out "repression aimed at slowing down and destroying the revolutionary and democratic struggle of the Iranian people".

    Rome police guarded the Embassy to prevent an intrusion, but a number of the students said they were starting a hunger strike outside.
