Human Shields in Iraq
In February 2003, international protests against plans for war in Iraq reached their height. Millions demonstrated in cities across the world, but some peace activists took things further by driving to Baghdad itself in a small fleet of buses. They planned to act as "human shields", protecting Iraqi civilians against the imminent bombing campaign.
Witness speaks to Joe Letts, a British bus driver who became one of the leaders of the campaign.
