On the eve of the anniversary of Sept. 11, Danny
Glover went out and told an audience at the University of Arkansas
that terrorism should be fought with dialogue, not war. In his
speech, Glover cited poverty as a cause of terrorism and cautioned
America not to "govern by anger." The actor apparently doesn't
know about the net worth of Osama and his terrorist friends

"When I say the death penalty is inhumane. I mean
[it's inhumane] whether that person is in a bird cage [jail] or
it's bin Laden."
"It gets even worse," he added. "This week President Bush implemented
a military tribunal ... which will make it easier for us to execute
"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.
"I've been an advocate for peace my whole life.
But one of the main purveyors of violence in this world is this
country," he said.

SAN FRANCISCO, California (CNN) -- Tens of thousands
of demonstrators in San Francisco protested Sunday against any
war with Iraq in a daylong rally that attracted celebrities and
Actor Danny Glover served as master of ceremonies
for the event, which was organized by International ANSWER, a
New York-based group that put together many of the weekend's protests.
Singer Bonnie Raitt led the march to the afternoon rally.
"Nobody had ever associated the war on terrorism
with Iraq until just recently," Glover told a reporter. "Remember,
the war on terrorism was with Osama bin Laden and al Qaeda and
everything else. ... We have to make a statement about this by
stopping this ongoing war."

"My position on the war is very clear, above all
for the impact that it will have on women and children in Iraq
who are already suffering the consequences of sanctions," he said.
Glover assured that there is a growing anti-war
movement in the United States that includes trade unions, universities
and community groups, "in a battle that will continue until our
anti-war voices are heard."

Glover said war is not a solution to terrorism,
and stressed rising inequality due to globalization.
Glover also questioned domestic policy. "A nation
that continues, year after year, to spend more money on defense
than social programs is nearing spiritual death," he said.

Interview by David Barsamian- December 2002 issue
of The Progressive
Q: Your opposition to the death penalty and the
war on terrorism embroiled you in some controversy. There was
a call to boycott your film The Royal Tenenbaums. What was that
Glover: I gave a speech at Princeton about
the death penalty at the invitation of the local Amnesty International
chapter. I reminded the audience that the United States is one
of the few countries that still imposes the death penalty while
it considers itself civilized. The European Union does not allow
the death penalty and supports its abolition around the world.
I was asked if my views on the death penalty applied to Osama
bin Laden. I said they did. And I added that I was opposed to
military tribunals, and to detentions that are still happening.
After that I was tagged by elements of the right as unpatriotic.
Q: There was a rally in mid-August in Washington,
D.C., in favor of reparations for descendants of African American
slaves. What's your position on that?
Glover: It's important that we continue to
knock at the door of reparations.

About 200 intellectuals, activists and artists from
Latin America and elsewhere issued a letter Monday urging the
top United Nations human rights watchdog to side with Cuba in
an expected battle over the communist country's rights record.
"We urge the governments of the commission's member
countries to not permit [the resolution] to be used to legitimize
the anti-Cuban aggression of the administration of [President]
Bush," the letter said.
Among American signatories were actor Danny Glover,
author Alice Walker and historian and activist Howard Zinn. Other
international figures included filmmaker Walter Salles of Brazil,
the music group Manu Chau and France's former first lady, Danielle
The letter said the U.S. government has no moral
authority to criticize Cuba's human rights record after its own
scandals over treatment of terror suspects at prisons in Iraq
and the U.S. naval base at Guantanamo Bay.
