Anti-Israeli Shoe Protest In London

London MarchUp to 12000 marchers today protested in London against the ongoing slaughter of Gazans. Many other protesters braved the cold weather to gather in Manchester and Edinburgh also.

Later hundreds threw symbolic shoes into Whitehall in a similar protest to that of the Iraqi journalist who threw his shoes at George W Bush at his last press conference in Baghdad.

I don’t suppose it’ll influence the thick-skinned politicians in the slightest, but it’s good to see people on the streets protesting. We’ve become too accepting as a nation.

Love the shoe protest!
