Joe Glenton to lead Saturday's march

The Sauce reports the news that Joe Glenton will become, this Saturday, the first serving UK soldier to publicly march against war since the invasion of Afghanistan in 2001. This serves as a symbol of how deep and widespread opposition to the occupation has become.

The enormous difficulties faced by the govenrnment over Afghanistan, on both military and political fronts, constitute an integral part of its own political crisis. This is not just a crisis for the current regime either - the Tories' commitment to the same policies ensures this will remain a critical political issue, and a trigger for mass protest, in the coming months and possibly years.
