How much do Black lives matter to the British military? An interview with Joe Glenton Part I

Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

Abstract

While serving as a soldier in Afghanistan, Joe Glenton grew disillusioned with British military adventurism and became an anti-war activist. He has since written a book about his experiences, Soldier Box, and is now a journalist for the Independent, Guardian, Daily Maverick and other outlets. In the first part of a wide-ranging interview with S&C Co-founding Editor Tom Sykes, Joe discusses his own active service and the British armed forces’ connections to the far right despite its attempts to appear ‘woke’ and progressive.
