Muntander al-Zeidi: the effects of just one shoe
As at least 35 senior Iraqi figures are arrested on suspicion of plotting a coup, the celebrated shoe chucker, Muntander al-Zeidi, is inspiring his compatriots all across the country to continue treating the occupiers with the contempt that they deserve. Fallujah, the city that was virtually destroyed earlier in the war, saw a demonstration in support of Zeidi, which the Americans opened fire on.
Will Iraq start to spiral out of imperialism's grasp once again? We can only hope.
