Danny Glover Bio
In 2006, Britain’s leading African theatre company Tiata Fahodzi set Danny Glover as one of its 3 Patrons, joining Chiwetel Ejiofor & Jocelyn Jee Esien opening the organization’s tenth anniversary celebrations Sunday 2 February 2008 at Theatre Royal Stratford East, London. On January 13, 2010, Glover compared the scale & devastation of the 2010 Haiti earthquake to the predicament other island states may face as a result of the failed Copenhagen summit the previous year. Glover said “…the threat of what happens to Haiti is a threat that can happen anywhere in the Caribbean to these island nations… they’re all in peril because of global warming… because of climate change… when we did what we did at the climate summit in Copenhagen, this is the response, this is what happens…” In the same statement, he called for a new form of international partnership with Haiti & other Caribbean nations and praised Venezuela, Brazil, and Cuba, for already accepting this partnership. On April 16, 2010, Glover was arrested in Maryland during a protest by SEIU workers for Sodexo’s unfair & illegal treatment of workers. He was given a citation and later released. The Associated Press reports “Glover & others stepped past yellow police tape & were asked to step back 3 times at Sodexo headquarters. When they refused, Starks says officers arrested them.”
