The world agrees with the shoe thrower
Supporters of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez demonstrate in front of the US embassy in Caracas on December 19, 2008 in support of the Iraqi journalist held for throwing his footwear at US President George W. Bush. Demonstrators around the world are voicing support for the 'courageous' journalist Muntazer al-Zaidi, who has been in custody in Baghdad since Sunday's dramatic shoe protest which made him an instant sensation in the Arab world.
