A written commentary will follow in the next post, but for now, two videos that I made pertaining to Saturday’s rally in Montreal (see the announcement on this blog), organized by Block the Empire, in solidarity with imprisoned Iraqi journalist, Muntadar al-Zeidi (yes, the famous shoe thrower). On Saturday, we were all shoe throwers.
First, a video summary of the protests and march through Montreal:
SHOES AGAINST BUSH and HARPER, MONTREAL RALLY, DEC. 20, 2008
Vodpod videos no longer available.
if that does not work for any reason, here it is again…
Second, a remixed compilation, with guest appearances by George W. Bush, produce for some added “context”:
A GLOBAL SHOE FLY ZONE: SHOES AT BUSH, FROM IRAQ TO QUEBEC
Also, see the great photos of the event taken by Anirudh Koul, on his flickr page.

Wonderful, Max. Those of us who could not participate in person, gave it our best shot–virtually. I hit Bush 5 times in the video game circulating on the ‘net.
LOL! Now you have given me a score to aim at.
