MUSIC writer Karl Dallas, recently a London Freelance Branch member, returned from the "human shield" in Baghdad to his home in Bradford on 21 March - and plans to go back, with musicians for a peace concert there. Fellow shield Jo Wilding, who should be recruited immediately on her return, was filing daily reports to the Guardian as late as 29 March.

Jo Wilding left
Baghdad on 30 March. The Iraqi Minsiter of Information had claimed that
busloads of human shields has been attacked by the US on the road between

Baghdad being attacked... who knows.
