Friday actor and activist Danny Glover returns to Mississippi in support of workers' rights at the Canton Nissan Plant.

Glover spoke at Tougaloo College. He has been a long advocate for the workers' rights to unionize at the plant.

Glover will be a part of a march with Bernie Sanders, among others, March 4th in Canton. Event organizers are hopeful this will bring attention to what they believe are poor working conditions at the plant.

Nissan released a statement saying "The allegations made by the union are totally false. The UAW has admitted that these efforts are part of a campaign to pressure the company into recognizing a union, even without employee support. Nissan respects and values the Canton workforce, and our history reflects that we recognize the employees' rights to decide for themselves whether or not to have third-party representation."
