Description Protesters threw shoes (and boots) at Bush posters in front of the U.S. consulate in Montreal, Canada on December 20th, 2008 during a protest in opposition to the US military occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan and Canada's military presence in Afghanistan, and to show support for Iraqi journalist Muntadar al-Zeidi (from the Bush Shoe incident).

Statement from the protest organizers:

"We support the calls for al-Zeidi's immediate release from detention, and denounce his abuse while in custody. And, in a simple gesture of solidarity by local anti-war activists and independent media journalists, we will gather outside the US consulate to hurl shoes in continued opposition to the US occupation of Iraq, as well as the already announced escalation of the US military occupation of Afghanistan by the incoming Obama administration (a continuation of "Operation Enduring Freedom", launched by George Bush after September 11, 2001).

We also continue to oppose Canada's complicity with the US-led "War on Terror", with the Canadian Armed Forces' military presence in Afghanistan. More Canadian troops in Afghanistan has effectively meant that more American troops have been available to occupy Iraq."
