Stop the War coalition and Media Workers Against the War are organising a solidarity protest at Grosevnor square to demand the release of the ‘Baghdad Shoe Thrower’ Muntadar al-Zaidi. The journalist has been held for the past few days and has reportedly suffered broken limbs, ribs and internal bleeding according to the BBC.

He has not been held under specific charges, but was evidently not in one of George Bush’s ‘free speech zones’.

Come along and express your grievances and chuck a few shoes around and help deliver a letter demanding his release this friday.

The prestigious and coveted Hell Broth ‘Man of the Year’ award has this year gone to the Baghdad ‘shoe thrower’. Whilst the site never likes to condone violence Muntadar al-Zeidi’s action is a protest that millions must have dreamed of whilst Bush’s callous blood lust and ineptitude has gone on. But also deeply regrets that neither missile hit its target.

The TV journalist also shouted that this was a ‘good bye kiss, dog!’

He now however finds himself captive of U.S. special forces in Iraq, despite Bush shrugging off the incident claiming it was something that people ‘do in a free society’. Thousands have taken to the streets to protest his arrest on no specific charges, is that something we do as well in a fee society?
