Actor Danny Glover Joins Activists in Protesting Against Nissan at the Detroit Show
He might be 66 years old but, apparently, he ain’t "too old for this s**t". Actor Danny Glover will join community leaders from the state of Mississippi who will come to Detroit on Monday, January 14, the opening press day at the 2013 North American International Auto Show, to protest against Nissan.
The actor, who is also an activist since attending university, and the rest of the protesters are renouncing the Japanese carmaker’s treatment of its workers at its Canton Vehicle Assembly plant as “unfair”.
UAW President Bob King welcomed his new allies in the union’s efforts to organize workers in Nissan’s U.S. facilities: “The UAW is glad to have a partner organization that is standing up for Nissan workers… Workers have had to endure months of meetings during work time where they only hear the employer’s anti-union views.”
