Afghanistan: Time to Go Stop the War Rally

On Monday 26 July, Joe Glenton, the soldier who said no to the war in Afghanistan, will make his first public speech since his release from military custody. He will speak at Stop the War's Time To Go rally in London, when he will be joined by Caroline Lucas MP, Mark Steel (comedian and Independent journalist) and Ross Williams, another soldier jailed for refusing to fight an unjustified war (full list of speakers below). Joe Glenton suffered months of imprisonment for making his stand against the war, and has shown great courage and principle throughout (SEE http://bit.ly/reppW ). The anti-war movement owes him a great debt and we hope everyone living in the London area who can, will be there on Monday when we show our appreciation. Please circulate details of the rally to welcome Joe's release and encourage as many people as you can to join us on 26 July.
