Joe Glenton still in custody

December 15, 2009

I received this message today from a member of the Stop the War Coalition. It’s about Joe Glenton (see also previous posts in category Joe Glenton).

“Joe Glenton is being held in custody despite being diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
 
He faces charges for refusing to go back to Afghanistan and for speaking out against the war.
 
He is woken up every morning at 6am by a loud kick on his door.
 
On learning of his disorder an army doctor told him he was still able to “run from a bullet”.
 
His wife Clare says “The support that he has been getting from the outside has made his time easier for him”.
 
According to the Ministry of Defence’s own figures, 67 soldiers who have returned from Iraq and Afghanistan have committed suicide.”
 
Please send a Christmas card and a message of support to Joe Glenton, Military Correction Training Centre, Berechurch Hall Camp, Colchester, Essex, CO2 9NU
