Iran event uproar halts meeting at UCL

Last night, Student Rights was denied entry from an event advertised on Facebook, which was due to take place on UCL campus.  The meeting was hosted by ISOC at the university, and welcomed Yvonne Ridley, as well as a minister from the current Iranian regime (via videolink) discussing the Iranian Revolution of 31 years ago. 

The event however, lasted only minutes as students took to the stage and demonstrated against the regime and demanded a 'FREE IRAN'. 

Video of the protest can be found at
