Joe Glenton, on right, leads march

For the first time, an active British soldier who is facing a
court-martial for refusing to return to Afghanistan has broken military
law to lead an
anti-war march through London. Speaking at a protest joined by former
soldiers and mlitary families, Lance Corporal Joe Glenton said he
believed "great wrongs" have been committed in Afghanistan.

"I cannot, in good conscience, be part of them. I'm bound by law and moral duty to try and stop them."
