INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Actor and activist Danny Glover has urged labor union members protesting at the Indiana Statehouse to stand in solidarity against what he called an organized campaign attacking American workers.

Several hundred union members cheered Monday as the star of the “Lethal Weapon” action movies told the protesters they are part of a nationwide battle to stop a “vicious attack” to take more from the middle class.

The protesters responded to other speakers with chants such as “We will not be moved!”

Democratic legislators have been boycotting the House since last week to prevent a vote on a slate of GOP-backed proposals. Thousands of union members last week filled Statehouse halls to protest Republican efforts to change legislation governing education and to curtail teachers’ rights.
