He will be joined by relatives of other soldiers, who are members of the Military Families Against The War campaign group, including Joan Humphries, whose grandson Kevin Elliot was killed in action in Afghanistan last year.
This video is called Joan Humphries – grandson Kevin killed in Afghanistan 2009.
The military families will deliver a letter to the Prime Minister calling for the government to bring British troops home from Afghanistan.
The group’s convener Lindsey German said students and sixth-form pupils from across the country will take part in the protest amid a “surge” of anti war feeling.
“It will be a lively demonstration to press for the withdrawal of troops. Spending on Afghanistan is now approaching £5 billion a year – money that should be spent on areas such as education and welfare, which are now under threat because of the Government’s spending cuts.”
Ms German said opposition to the war was growing, with 75% of the British public wanting the troops home now.
