Iranian students’ poisoned food!

This footage shows a demonstration by language students at the University of Tehran, who staged a protest at conditions at the university on Saturday, December 23, 2017, following multiple incidents of serious food poisoning among students due to contaminated foodstuffs from the university canteen, with a number of students hospitalized as a result.

Although a number of students had to be rushed to hospital with food poisoning, university authorities ignored students’ repeated complaints. This negligence on the university administration’s part, along with student unhappiness about other issues such as poor conditions in student dormitories and exorbitant course costs, led students at the university’s Faculty of Foreign Languages to lay out their food trays on the campus ground in protest

Whilst university officials responded to the protests by claiming that they are addressing the issues, the same problems are seen at universities across Iran.
