Protest in Kashan University, july 2009!

video

Once again thanks to Saeed for this video: students singing and dancing at the Kashan university.

They form chains and sing “Yare dabestani", “my fellow schoolmate" a classic revolutionary song that every Iranian around knowns by heart.

(rough translation)

My schoolmate
You're with me and going along with me
The alphabet stick is above our heads
You're my spite and my woe
Our names have been carved
On the body of this blackboard
The stick of injustice and tyranny
Still remains on our body
This uncivilized plain of ours
Is covered with weeds
Good, if good
Bad, if bad
Dead is the hearts of its people
My hand and yours
Should tear up these curtains
Who can, except you and I
Cure our pain?
My schoolmate
You're with me and going along with me
The alphabet stick is above our heads
You're my spite and my woe
Our names have been carved
On the body of this blackboard
The stick of injustice and tyranny
Still remains on our body
