The international trend of 'shoeing' strikes another victim, this time the Israeli ambassdor to Sweden Benny Dagan. Dagan, who was holding a pathologically apologetic lecture of unwaivering defense for war crimes and atrocities on civilians in front of a crowd of about 50 people at Stockholm University, had shoes, books and slogans hurled at him yesterday. Two persons were arrested by police at the scene. According to the Stockholm Police at least one object hit Dagan, making it the first shoe projectile to hit its target. Interestingly, the Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs, denies this claim.
The following day, February 5, protests also erupted when Benny Dagan held a lecture at Linköping University. Protestors yelled 'Words don't blood away' ('Ord tvättar inte blod'). Five persons were detained by police. (Links: 1, 2, 3)
The purpose of this blog is to give commentary, news and other info on events, current and past.
This blog came about spontaneously (titled 'Gaza Peace n' Freedom') in the midst of the January 2009 Gaza Massacre, seeking to present links, photos and videos of a fraction of the multitude of protests occuring around the world with the objective of letting the people of Gaza know that they are not alone, letting the Israeli warmongers know that their crimes will not be forgotten.
