Some Real Bravery By Students

How easy it is to talk about ‘stupid cowboys’ and ‘plastic turkeys’; here are some students with real courage:

TEHRAN, Iran (CNN) — A group of students Monday briefly interrupted a speech by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad at their university by booing and chanting “Death to the dictator,” Iranian news agencies reported.
The protesting students apparently avoided security guards who tried to prevent them from attending the speech at Amir Kabir University, according to the student news Web site, ADWAR.
As Ahmadinejad approached the podium to speech, the members of the Islamic Students Association — a banned group — began booing and chanting, while some even burned pictures of the Iranian president, ADWAR reported.
Ahmadinejad responded by accusing the protesting students of having no shame and being on the payroll of the United States, according to ADWAR. He added that he loved each one of them and said, “You insult me but I will respond to you calmly.”

Let’s hope nothing bad happens to them, and their protests can grow and spread.
