The day before Lance Corporal Joe
Glenton of the Royal Logistic Corp appears before a military court
to be sentenced for speaking out against the legitimacy of the
continuing occupation of Afghanistan, and refusing to serve the
occupation, campaigners gather at the British Ministry of Defence
(MOD) to deliver a petition containing thousands of signatures
demanding the charges be dropped against him.
The campaign is international in scope with synchronised actions
taking place in Germany, Ireland, Poland, Russia, Turkey and the US.
The campaigners deliver their petition successfully to the MOD via a
senior MOD police officer.
L/C Joe Glenton is due to be sentenced tomorrow at Colchester and
faces up to two years imprisonment.
In the later part of 2009, Joe took part in a large anti-war protest
where he defied orders to remain silent in public. The protest led
to the British Military bringing supplementary charges against Joe
which were later dropped due to public pressure.
He will appear at Colchester barracks for sentencing tomorrow Friday
5th March 2010. A further protest is also to take place outside the
MOD, London, UK. 4th March 2010.
