84% think NATO is losing the war - new poll announced as thousands march

Channel 4 News, in 'Britons believe 'Afghan war is failing'', provides some excellent film of the Stop the War march and rally in central London - as well as reporting a new poll which shows an astonishing lack of confidence in government policy. 84% said they believe UK and NATO troops are not winning the war, while 62% want the troops brought home immediately or in the next year.

Joe Glenton, the lance corporal who has courageously defied military top brass in refusing to fight in Afghanistan, led the march. His story is the major focus in most coverage, alongside accounts of military families speaking out against the occupation of Afghanistan. Click HERE for The Guardian's report.
