SHOES FOR BUSH at White House Wednesday 11 a.m.
Please join CODE PINK: Women for Peace, AfterDowningStreet, and Democrats.com this Wednesday, December 17, 2008, in Washington, D.C., at Lafayette Square Park in front of the White House. We will have with us a large supply of shoes. We encourage you to bring your old shoes as well. Come rally with us in solidarity with the Iraqi people to demand an immediate and complete end to the occupation of Iraq.
A dozen people have proposed mailing shoes to the White House. Great idea! Mail away.
The White House,
1600 Pennsylvania Av. NW,
Washington, DC 10500.
Iraqi TV Reports here and here Al-Zaydi Being Tortured in U.S. Prison. Here's BBC and Times of London. Here's all you'd know if you relied on the AP. NY Times reports on beating and says he'll be in court on Wednesday.
Listen for discussion of this on Tuesday's Urban Journal.
I think we should get a cardboard tourist Bush and give prizes for whoever can knock him over with a shoe from 30 feet, or - if necessary - a brave volunteer to wear a Bush mask and get pelted with shoes. Bring what props you can!
