This Day in Daily History

Dec. 10, 1977 — Thirty members of the Iranian Student Association of Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti staged an hour-long demonstration on the Diag and later marched to City Hall in protest of the recent arrest of a member of their group as well as the handling of Iranians in their home country.

The group member had been arrested a month prior to the protest for wearing a mask during a protest for the Shah’s U.S. visit. He was released on $1,000 bond.

The group’s protest on the Diag received little notice from passers-by, who seemed bothered by the activity. The City Hall protest also did not receive much attention and ended in about 15 minutes.
