They chanted, “Dear of Homeland” and “Martyr of Homeland” and staged gatherings in various parts of Mashhad. Tehran was the stage of demonstrations with chants of “You took Majidreza and brought back his body.” In this regard, students protested at Sharif, Allameh, and Melli universities in Tehran and Noshirvani University in Babol.

University students of Tehran Fine Arts School of Music performed a folk song which is about declaring war and taking up arms. Students at Sharif University honored the memory of Mohsen Shekari and Majidreza Rahnavard in the Ibn Sina building by lighting candles and installing photos of these martyrs of the uprising. University students in Babol also installed photos of the two martyrs in the classrooms and corridors of the university. In protest of the executions of the rebellious youths and suspension and banning of students, the students of Allameh University’s Faculty of Literature gathered and chanted slogans such as “Hail to slain martyrs, Navid (Afkari), Mohsen (Shekari) and other comrades”, “Freedom, Freedom, Freedom,” and “We don’t want a security(-monitored) university.” Students protested in Mashhad, Shiraz, and Jakigur Rask in Sistan and Baluchistan provinces.
