Human Rights and Democracy Activists in Iran- Heavy clashes continue between people and the security forces around Enghelab Square (#9 on the map in link below).

Around 4:15pm Tehran time, Enghelab Square and the area surrounding the University of Tehran (#5) are filled with crowds of people chanting “Death to Dictator” while continue their path to Azadi (Freedom) Square (#1).

Around 4:20pm, security forces charged toward the crowd and heavy clashes erupted between people and the forces who attacked protesters with batons. Some protesters have been injured as a result. The forces tried unsuccessfully to break and disperse the crowd. The security forces have a strong presence in the area, but the protestors are practically controlling the Azadi Street (#11)
