Joe Glenton faces court martial - show him your support

I've blogged about Joe Glenton's campaign a number of times, including HERE and HERE. The soldier, who refused to serve in Afghanistan because he believes the war is profoundly wrong, faces a court martial next week. For those of us unable to make it to the protest at the court martial hearing, it's possible to send Joe messages of support. Send to:

This comes via Stop the War:

Protest at Joe Glenton's court martial hearing
Friday 5 March 2010

As a result of Joe's brave public campaigning against the war and the support he has received from the anti-war movement, the Ministry of Defence has dropped the most serious charge of desertion. However, Joe still faces the possibility of a prison term of up to two years and Stop the War is calling a protest at the court martial when he appears. The court martial will be held in Colchester.

Protest To Defend Joe Glenton
9.30am Friday 5 March
The Military Court Centre
Merville Barracks
Off Butt Rd
Colchester CO2 7UT

Stop the War is asking its supporters to publicise the protest as widely as possible. Anyone wishing to join us and who requires transport from outside London should contact our national office: Call 020 7801 2768 or email
