Internationally, Glover has served as a Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations Development Program from 1998 - 2004, focusing on issues of poverty, disease and economic development in Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean, and currently serves as UNICEF Ambassador. - TransAfrica Forum

Toussaint: The Movie  6/24/2009 Repeating Islands: "During a visit to Paris last month for a seminar on film, [Danny Glover] told AFP that “Producers said ‘It’s a nice project, a great project… where are the white heroes?’” He added, “I couldn’t get the money here, I couldn’t get the money in Britain. I went to everybody. You wouldn’t believe the number of producers based in Europe, and in the States, that I went to. The first question you get, is ‘Is it a black film?’ All of them agree, it’s not going to do good in Europe, it’s not going to do good in Japan. Somebody has to prove that to be a lie!”, he said. “Maybe I’ll have the chance to prove it.” “Toussaint,” Glover’s first project as film director, is to start shooting next year in Venezuela, starring Don Cheadle, Mos Def, Wesley Snipes and Angela Bassett, after Glover raised 18 of the 30 million dollars needed from a Venezuelan cultural body set up in 2006 by his friend President Hugo Chavez to counter what he termed “the Hollywood film dictatorship.” The project will film in Venezuela as part of the agreement but also because the degree of environmental degradation in Haiti since the Revolution has been such as to make it impossible to recreate the natural environment in which the Revolution was fought."

Danny Glover, Haiti, and the Politics of Revolutionary Cinema in Venezuela  8/14/2008 Venezuela Analysis: "In 2007 the National Association of Film Makers and the Venezuelan Chamber of Film Producers criticized Glover for using political contacts to secure the funding package without a bidding process. The filmmakers called such methods "demoralising and detrimental to future generations of Venezuelan movie-makers." Claudia Nazoa, president of the Venezuelan Chamber of Feature Film Producers (known by its Spanish acronym Caveprol), said, "What worries us is this trend for neo-colonisation by international figures who come to talk of their support for Chávez's government—and leave with money for their projects." In 2007, Venezuela provided $18 million to fund Toussaint, and this year the authorities kicked in an extra $9 million. Venezuelan directors complain that the budget for Glover’s film matches the entire state budget for domestic films from 2003 to 2008—a sum they say could “finance 36 Venezuelan films.” Culture Minister Sesto called it "naive" to think the movie industry would be out $18 million, since the money did not come from Villa del Cine's operating funds but were part of an "additional credit.” He added, "The funds earmarked for this movie will be invested exclusively in Venezuela ... creating jobs and providing excellent experience for our national film industry.” "

Venezuela giving Danny Glover $18m to direct film on epic slave revolt  5/21/2007 Guardian: "Venezuela is to give the American actor Danny Glover almost $18m (£9m) to make a film about a slave uprising in Haiti, with President Hugo Chávez hoping the historical epic will sprinkle Hollywood stardust on his effort to mobilise world public opinion against imperialism and western oppression. The Venezuelan congress said it would use the proceeds from a recent bond sale with Argentina to finance Glover's biopic of Toussaint Louverture, an iconic figure in the Caribbean who led an 18th-century revolt in Haiti."

Danny Glover praises Venezuela's education minister ... opposition bristles  1/12/2004 Vheadlines: "The Black Americans' visit to Venezuela has raised controversy and created a somewhat irrational response among opposition sectors that deny the existence of racism in Venezuela, accusing the Venezuelan President of artificially whipping up non-existent racial tensions and hatred. Analysts suggest that it is time for Afro-Venezuelans ... such as Barlovento-based and Unesco-sponsored, Jesus Chucho Garcia ... and other domestic black experts to speak out on the matter and place the debate on a more equal footing."

Danny Glover is Making a Difference  1/12/2004 WORK, Rochester, NY 

Condoleezza Rice: refrain yourself from speaking of Venezuela!!  1/12/2004 Vcrisis: "Can you not see that Danny Glover is talking? How do you dare to utter words of constitutional respect? Are Venezuelans not living in a paradise land ruled by the most benign, pro-active and forward-thinker of the Americas since Simon Bolivar? Silence!! Let us hear the sage words of Mr Glover on the struggle of African-Venezuelans in Venezuela. I felt the need to come out of my self-imposed ban to comment on some issues. It appears that everyone is quite pissed owing to the visit of the third tier Hollywood actor to Venezuela. Why should we give a flying fu*** about this loser anyway? Who gives a shit about what he thinks? What audiences is he to manipulate in Chavez’ favour?"

Danny Glover y Bill Fletcher Jr. en Venezuela: medios estadounidenses no reflejan realidad venezolana  1/8/2004 Aporrea: "Muy emocionado declaró sentirse, por su parte, Danny Glover, protagonista de los filmes "Arma letal" y "El color púrpura", quien aseguró que no podía desperdiciar la oportunidad de ser parte del momento histórico que se vive en Venezuela. Glover definió el proceso venezolano como un intento de hacer un país integracionista, en el que caben todos sus ciudadanos, y confirmó que "lo que se recibe en Estados Unidos, es básicamente desinformación". Lo que dicen los medios allá, agregó, no está acorde con la realidad venezolana y es por eso que hemos venido a escuchar y aprender no sólo de los políticos, sino también de la sociedad civil."

Associated Press reports Danny Glover and black American activists visit Venezuela  1/8/2004 Vheadlines: "The Associated Press is reporting that actor Danny Glover was among a delegation of black American activists who began a 9-day visit to meet President Hugo Chavez Frias and study the situation of blacks in Venezuela… Andres Izarra, spokesman for the Venezuelan Embassy in Washington D.C., said the delegation also includes Patricia Ford of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU), economist and writer Julianne Malveaux and James Early, director of Cultural Heritage Policy at the Smithsonian Institution's Center for Folklife & Cultural Heritage."

Afro-American celebrities on week-long visit to see Venezuela with their own eyes  1/8/2004 Vheadlines: "Venezuelanalysis.com is reporting that TransAfrica Forum president Bill Fletcher, actor Danny Glover, and US Service Employees International Union (SEIU) vice president Patricia Ford have started a week-long visit to Venezuela to see the results of the 'peaceful revolutionary process' led by President Hugo Chavez Frias… The delegation was accompanied today by Venezuelan Ambassador to Washington, D.C., Bernardo Alvarez Herrera, and included actor Danny Glover, Bill Fletcher, the international vice president of the Service Employees International Union (SEIU) Patricia Ford, professor of criminology and director of the Department of Urban Studies (Washington, D.C.) Sylvia Hill, Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) economist Julianne Malyeaux and the vice president of the TransAfrica Forum, Selena Mendy Singleton et.al… Tomorrow, Friday, the group will attend the inauguration of the Bolivarian “Martin Luther King, Jr.” School in the Caribbean coastal town of Naiguata, where large numbers of Afro-Venezuelans live ... it will be the first official recognition in Venezuela of the leadership of one of the most important civil rights leaders from the United States in an event hosted by Minister of Education, Culture & Sports, Aristobulo Isturiz and Ambassador Alvarez Herrera. The delegation’s presence in Venezuela will also launch the official recognition of Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday as a day of national celebration in Venezuela where a high percentage of the population traces its roots back to Africa ... the holiday has been celebrated in the United States since January 20 (1986) despite significant controversy, and is the only federal holiday commemorating an Afro-American. They have also been invited to meet local community groups, members of the women’s rights movement, government officials, educators and opposition leaders and will take part in President Chavez Frias’ weekly radio and television program 'Alo Presidente' on Sunday. Continuing to next Monday, the group will visit several working class neighborhoods in Caracas and meet with community activists."

Opinion & Editorial Commentary - Danny Glover travels to Venezuela to show his support for the Venezuelan Blacks  1/4/2004 Petroleum World: "The pretended purpose of the trip is, in itself, an indication of the distorted nature of your visit. You are coming to Venezuela to "study" the situation of the Venezuelan blacks. Sir, you are being a racist. You would be hard put to find "blacks" in Venezuela, except in villages such as Curiepe. In Venezuela almost everybody is dark. We are a mestizo country, Sir. We have no black oppressed minority in Venezuela, but a great mass of mestizos and mulattos lacking running water, decent schools and hospitals, running like rabbits to get home before sunset arrives, together with murderers and robbers; lacking decent employment and the required amount of daily calories. Are you telling me that, in the middle of this social chaos produced by the most inefficient and corrupt government we have had in modern Venezuelan history, you are coming to "study" the situation of blacks in the country? As they say in your native San Francisco: Give me a break."

Vengo a Cuba a aprender, afirma el actor norteamericano Danny Glover  12/19/2003 Prensa Latina 

You can’t break the ties between us - An interview with Danny Glover  9/16/2003 Cuba Now: "My first connection with Cuba was when I was about 12 years old, right at the time of the Cuban revolution. My parents were postal workers and they were very much involved in the union. And at the time of the Cuban revolution, African Americans were very supportive of that victory. There were many African Americans with leadership positions who were very proud of the victory of the Cuban revolution. So that was the first time that I heard of it, and heard of the names of Comandante Che, and also Comandante Fidel."

Danny Glover: Still standing  6/9/2003 Final Call: "Mr. Glover and TransAfrica President Bill Fletcher are cautious in victory, however, warning that their opponents are relentless, and will try again to try to wear them down… "When Paul was attacked, there wasn’t the kind of technology that we have now. Bill Fletcher, the President of TransAfrica, just got on the phone and got on the Internet, and all of a sudden we had a response for Dial-in for Democracy, which was very, very important in terms of mobilizing people and getting people out, and getting people to call MCI, creating a major response, almost immediately. But that kind of technology did not exist" at the time Mr. Robeson was persecuted, he continued."

Urgent Alert -- We Celebrate A Victory  5/20/2003 TransAfrica Forum: US right wingers had tried to get Danny Glover fired from his MCI contract for his stance on Cuba and Iraq -- "Our contract with Danny Glover runs through January 2004 and we intend to honor our contract... " This message resonates with the sound of victory for our "Dial-in for Democracy" Campaign. It was launched in response to the right-wing attack on TransAfrica Forum Board Chairperson Danny Glover. Our action alert last week asked friends and supporters to contact MCI to insist that it not back down in its relationship with Danny in the face of attacks from right-wing extremists. Our alert was followed by an outstanding commentary by Tavis Smiley on the Tom Joyner Morning Show (May 15th), along with other media attention. A massive response ensued. MCI was deluged with telephone calls, e-mails and faxes."

Something very shady and sinister is happening in the United States  5/20/2003 Granma: "THE news that Danny Glover has become a target of heavy attack for questioning White House foreign policy and for signing the Call to the Conscience of the World — urging respect for the free determination of the Cuban people — yesterday generated denunciations and demonstrations by the island’s artists and intellectuals in support of the famous U.S. actor… Nancy Morejón, winner of the National Literature Award, is a friend of the actor. On discovering that he had become a victim of neo-McCarthyism, she sent him a message: "You must know, Danny, that you are being put to a hard test. Remember the case of that great singer Paul Robeson or that of Marian Anderson; so much happened to them for remaining faithful to their truth." "

Actor Danny Glover, target of right-wing McCarthy like witch hunt, receives support from African Americans  5/18/2003 AfroCubaWeb: "Tom Joyner suggested what may be the best response on his popular national radio show, the Tom Joyner Morning Show: let MCI know you are watching their actions."

Danny Glover Targeted for Anti-War Views  5/18/2003 AP: "There is so much concern about this in Hollywood that in March before the fighting even began the Screen Actors Guild issued a statement warning studio executives not to deny work to entertainers who speak against war in Iraq… "We are at an important point in our history and we need a serious, open debate about it," said David Kairys, constitutional law professor at Temple University. "Criticizing Danny Glover, or wishing all sorts of ill fortune to him, would be counterproductive. The way to counter this is for more and more people to stand up ... in an atmosphere where people can express their views, and not be afraid they're going to lose their jobs." "

Danny Glover targeted  5/15/2003 Black Commentator: "TransAfrica provided the following MCI contact information: Anyone can call the PR office to comment: 800/644-NEWS or 202/736-6700 MCI Customers can call Customer Service at 800/444-3333 Email can be done through the website - there is an electronic submission form: http://consumer.mci.com/customer_service/ContactUs.jsp"

The Strange Conscience of Danny Glover  5/14/2003 NewsMax: by the inimitable right wing hack, Myles Cantor.

Glover's dangerous weapon  5/14/2003 The Age: "He recently signed an open letter in support of Fidel Castro that stated that the administration's "harassment against Cuba could serve as a pretext for an invasion." A number of groups have threatened to boycott MCI if it doesn't disconnect Glover as pitchman from its ad campaign, MSNBC's The Scoop reports. In a Brazilian magazine interview, Glover accused Bush of pushing a "conservative program designed to eliminate everything Americans had accomplished" in matters of race and equality. In a statement, MCI praised Glover's work. But the company added that it is reviewing "options for new product campaigns." The whole thing may be moot since Glover's contract with MCI runs only two more weeks."

MCI SPOKESMAN SUPPORTS CASTRO: TERRORIST MURDERER WHO SYSTEMATICALLY VIOLATES HUMAN RIGHTS  5/13/2003 Judicial Watch: from Black Commentator: "The "Get-Glover" campaign is spearheaded by the far-right attack dog Judicial Watch, a truly primitive outfit. "MCI must fire Glover," howled Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. Outraged at Glover's support for lifting the U.S. embargo against Cuba, Fitton threw a ... fit. "Any more than it should have a spokesman supporting Osama bin Laden, it can't have a spokesman supporting terrorist Castro," he raged."

TRANSAFRICA FORUM URGENT ACTION APPEAL: Dial In For Democracy and to Support Danny Glover  5/13/2003 TransAfrica: "Despite all the rhetoric from the White House and in conservative political circles regarding freedom of speech and human rights, the illegal Anglo-American invasion of Iraq demonstrated that it is all at best disingenuous. This is becoming all too clear at this moment with the concerted attack on TransAfrica Forum Board of Directors Chairperson Danny Glover… The attack on Danny takes place at the same time that other courageous public figures are facing the wrath of the administration and their allies on the political Right for daring to challenge US foreign policy on Iraq, Cuba and countless other situations. The attempt to isolate and destroy political opponents is reminiscent of the McCarthy era. It happened to the great Paul Robeson in the 1950s, and from that lesson we should learn that this can NEVER be allowed to happen again."

WRKS hosts unite to back Danny Glover  5/5/2003 NY Daily News: "WRKS (98.7 FM) morning cohost Jeff Foxx yesterday said his show will actively join in defending actor Danny Glover, who is under fire for his criticism of the Iraqi war and President George W. Bush. Foxx spoke to the WRKS Sunday "Open Line" team of Bob Pickett, James Mtume and Bob Slade, who is also the newsman on the daily "Wake-Up Club" with Foxx and Shaila. Pickett, Mtume and Slade charged there are "echoes of McCarthyism" in the attacks on Glover, who has been a target of MSNBC commentator and former GOP Rep. Joe Scarborough."

Danny Glover critica a EE.UU. por embargo a Cuba y posible guerra  1/30/2003 Granma: "El actor estadounidense Danny Glover criticó el miércoles a su país por el embargo (bloqueo) económico a Cuba y opinó que los estadounidenses no apoyan una eventual guerra contra Iraq, informó Reuters. Glover llegó a Uruguay, tras asistir al Foro Social Mundial que se desarrolló en Porto Alegre, Brasil, para dictar una conferencia sobre Democracia, cultura y globalización."

Remarks by Danny Glover Before National Press Club, November 12, 2002  11/12/2002 TransAfrica Forum: "We are in the preliminary stages of planning a hemispheric conference on race and labor, and will continue to find public vehicles to express our opposition to U.S. policy toward Cuba." Bill Fletcher, who is now president of TransAfrica Forum, participated in TransAfrica's trip to Cuba in 1999.

DANNY GLOVER IN HAVANA AGAIN - A place in the heart  5/27/2002 Granma: "Danny was recently elected president of the TransAfrica Forum, an influential nongovernmental organization promoting decisive and equitable participation by the African American community, specifically, and all people in the United States in that country’s decision-making and the society in general; educational efforts on human rights and social policy; and recognition and exchange with African peoples and black communities around the world, especially in the Caribbean, whose ancestors were slaves. He explained that TransAfrica has made valuable contacts in Cuba, and hopes to keep increasing that communication and carrying out mutually beneficial concrete actions. "I’m sure that even in the short run there will be pleasant surprises."

Con Danny Glover, una vez más, en La Habana  4/28/2002 Cultura, Cuba: "A la pasión por el conocimiento de la sociedad cubana, el cine, la música y las artes plásticas —se confiesa admirador de Manuel Mendive y Flora Fong— acaba de sumar esta semana interés por el trabajo que desarrolla Rogelio Martínez Furé en torno a las tradiciones de origen africano, las novelas históricas de Marta Rojas y las investigaciones sobre la interacción entre las culturas de Cuba y los Estados Unidos que lleva a cabo el Centro Juan Marinello y promueve nuestro amigo común James Earlie desde la Smithsonian Institution."

In Defense Of Danny Glover  1/29/2002 Black World Today 

Danny Glover Under Attack  1/7/2002 Black World Today: "As the totalitarianism rustles continue to rise across the American landscape sowing intolerance, more and more progressive voices are being targeted. Danny Glover is the latest.

LETHAL LESSON  11/16/2001 Trentonian, Philadelphia: Danny Glover talks sense: "Glover spent the first 30 minutes of his presentation at McCosh 50 auditorium deriding the death penalty, which he called "homicide as the official tool of the state." He went on to chide the U.S. government for incarceration of nearly 1,000 illegal immigrants in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks, and derided John Ashcroft for asking permission to listen to conversations between terrorist suspects and their lawyers. "It gets even worse," he added. "This week President Bush implemented a military tribunal ... which will make it easier for us to execute (people)." "This clearly is a slippery slope. We must stand vigilant against Bush in these times and work with the abolitionists. "One of the main purveyors of violence in this world has been this country, whether it's been against Nicaragua, Vietnam or wherever," Glover added."

Bastion of Dissent Offers Tribute to One of Its Heroes  10/22/2001 Common Dreams: "Danny Glover, the actor, called her a hero. Alice Walker, the writer, called her inspiring. The crowd, 3,500 strong, awaited her appearance with the giddiness of autograph seekers awaiting their favorite Hollywood star. It is not often a fairly new member of Congress is honored so publicly, by so many, for a single vote. But Barbara Lee, the Democratic representative of the Ninth Congressional District since 1998, was honored today with songs, poetry and speeches for being the only lawmaker in the House or the Senate to vote against granting the president the authority to use military force against terrorism."
