A former "human shield" held by Iraq for several months in 1990 condemns proposed attack on Iraq and urges all Labour Party members to tear up membership cards outside No 10 Downing Street urgently in protest of unjustified action on Iraq. Cardiff based Professor Ron Eccles, who has been to Iraq on a number of occassions as a visiting lecturer, said "I have always been a strong supporter of the Labour Party, and have vigourosly campaigned for the support of New Labour, but I and my family are taking this action because we are so concerned that present government policy is inhuman and illegal."
