From an e-mail by José van Leeuwen in the Netherlands:
We want to follow the example of the Iraqi journalist who had the courage to throw a shoe at Bush who had ruined his country.
We want to collect as many shoes as possible in order to make the bye-bye [of George W. Bush as president on 19 January] as impressive as possible.
Everyone can write a message which then will be linked to a shoe. …
Send your message to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will take care of everything.
If you want to be present to hand your shoe yourself, then come on Monday 19 January from 15:00 to 19:00 to the United States embassy in The Hague.
Many Iraqis have already followed the journalist’s example.
