Anti-war soldier Joe Glenton has spoken at several rallies about his refusal to go back to war in Afghanistan.
反戰士兵喬格倫頓已在幾次集會說話,關於他拒絕返回阿富汗戰爭。

A former British soldier who was previously jailed for refusing to fight in Afghanistan has told an anti-war rally that every second he spent behind bars was worth his decision.
一名前英軍士兵因為拒絕在阿富汗作戰曾被判入獄,已告訴一反戰集會,他遭受牢獄所花的每一秒都是值得的決定。
Lance Corporal Joe Glenton, 27, told a gathering of anti-war campaigners in Central London that public opinion is decisively against the war and that British soldiers must be brought home, a Press TV correspondent reported.
27歲上等兵喬格倫頓在倫敦市中心告訴一反戰運動者的聚集,民意是果斷地反對戰爭而英軍士兵必須被帶回家,一新聞TV記者報導。
Earlier in 2009, Glenton wrote a letter to then Prime Minister Gordon Brown, explaining that the occupation of Afghanistan was immoral and illegal.
在2009年前期,格倫頓寫了一封信給當時的首相布朗,解釋阿富汗的佔領是不道德的和非法的。
He went on to warn that the invasion was "antagonizing the entire Muslim world."
他接著警告,入侵是“對抗整個穆斯林的世界。”
The former soldier was sentenced to nine months in prison in March after going absent without leave from the army in 2007 and refusing to fight in Afghanistan.

However, Glenton was released for good behavior after serving four months of his nine-month sentence.
不過格倫頓因行為良好被釋放,在他服膺 9個月刑期的4個月後。
His public appearance comes as the documents leaked by whistle-blower website Wikileaks revealed the detail of the war in Afghanistan from 2004 to 2009.
他的公開露面出現當告密者網站 維基解密洩露文件,揭示 2004至2009年阿富汗戰爭的詳情。
The files include many accounts of how US and British soldiers killed or wounded Afghan civilians in unreported attacks.
檔案包括多項敍述,美國和英國士兵如何殺死或傷害阿富汗平民,在未經報導的攻擊。
Britain has about 10,000 troops in Afghanistan, mostly based in the south of the country. Since the start of the war in 2001, 325 British soldiers have lost their lives in the war-torn country.

The rising number of foreign casualties has sparked anger in the countries which are allied with the US in its war in Afghanistan.
