The crowd chanted loudly all the way down Queen Street in one of the most spirited demonstrations in years. They rallied outside the US consulate and hurled a sea of shoes.

The people then marched back up Queen Street calling for a boycott of Israel, an end to the occupation and denouncing Israel and the United States.
