Danny Glover supports Indigenous activism

IEU Aboriginal and Torres Straits Islander Committee and Unions NSW First Peoples Network Committee member Vincent Copper met with US actor and Indigenous rights activist Danny Glover recently.

Glover paid a visit to Unions NSW Trades Hall where he met Cooper and other unionists.

The Lethal Weapons actor said unions were an important part of the fight for Indigenous rights.

“Unions have always been allies in our struggles for justice. We have to find our allies not only to build but to change and to bring our First Nations people into our struggle for justice,” Glover said.

He also put his support behind the Uluru Statement from the Heart.

Cooper said he was thrilled to meet Glover, who was a great advocate for Indigenous causes around the world.
