Canadian Green leader protests detention of American journalist Amy Goodman

KW: Sometimes when overzealous government law enforcement go too far, it becomes so comical, it is difficult to realize the travesty of justice that occurred. But, the victim was still harmed and the practices are still in place. So, we should acknowledge the violation of rights, try to learn from what happened, and use the […]

Eloquent shoe-thrower, Al-Zeidi, to be released early!

Photo of rally from AP is: here Please note that Muntadhar Al-Zeidi, the Iraqi journalist and war correspondent who protested then US President Bush’s surprise visit to Iraq, will be in court again on Thursday, March 12th. (excerpt from) suomenkuvalehti.fi Iraq Protest

Lots of news about Al-Zeidi: appeared in court, strategy set, adjourned date set

“What made me do it was the humiliation Iraq has been subjected to due to the U.S. occupation and the murder of innocent people,” al-Zeidi said. “I wanted to restore the pride of the Iraqis in any way possible, apart from using weapons.” Summary from the AP story: 1.Al-Zeidi appeared in court, with no signs […]

Good news: Al-Zeidi to have a trial on Feb 19th

KW: Well, it is good news, if for the trial, the Iraqi government finally allows the public a glimpse at Muntadha al-Zeidi so that the world knows he is well. Since the AP story on the subject inserts some “hot” words into their story, such as applying the word “outburst” to al-Zeidi’s action, I think […]

Update: Al-Zeidi the Eloquent Shoe Thrower

An AP story reports news that is a little heartening. I still have concerns with the lack of visibility of our beloved and heroic political prisoner, Muntadhar Al-Zeidi. Al-Zeidi is the journalist who threw his shoes at President Bush (and missed), while exclaiming, “This is from the widows, the orphans and those who were killed […]

Al-Zaidi’s trial set for Thurs. Dec. 31st, 2008

Update: SAVE THE DATE: December 29th demonstration in D.C. in  support of Muntadhar: here. KW: Please help me keep vigil over the eloquent, shoe-throwing hero, Muntadhar Al-Zaidi. The Prime Minister of Iraq (who is a friend of George Bush’s) has created unique and wild accusations to try to smear Al-Zaidi. I keep seeking petitions and […]

Al-Zeidi goes from minister’s security guards to Iraqi Military Command

I think it is important for people to come to know journalist Muntadhar al-Zeidi, speak his name, and watch what the governments of Iraq (and the United States?) have in store for him. I am grateful to the article below for showing me exactly who is keeping the man in custody.
