Most other elected officials must be "HELD ACCOUNTABLE".
Barack Obama must be "HELPED".
I see how this works.
AMERICAN artistes Harry Belafonte and Danny Glover have said US President Barack Obama needs support if he has to effect the change he promised.
Addressing journalists here in Havana, Cuba on Friday evening following the inauguration of the Travelling Caribbean Film Show and offices in Cuba, Belafonte said the world is in front of a crisis.
"Many people have high hopes but little of the hope is realised, delivered as promised," he said. "President Obama raised great optimism but it is not enough for us to stand back and watch him face the many complicated problems alone. All of us must get behind him and if it is necessary force him to make, execute policies to the interests of Africa and Afro-Americans, and the marginalised peoples of the world."
Belafonte said President Obama was the hope for those who looked for a better world.
"He [President Obama] spoke strongly for change and I think he meant change for everyone," he said. "We seek that he directs that change to our interests."
Harry Belafonte and Danny Glover Open Cuba Film Office
HAVANA, Cuba (ACN) -- American artistes Harry Belafonte and Danny Glover inaugurated on Friday the Havana office of the traveling Caribbean film festival, which is celebrating its second edition.
The opening of a venue of this project that includes traveling Caribbean film showcases dedicated to children and adolescents received strong support that will allow the further expansion of the initiative, which has already reached 31 countries in the area.
Cuban Culture Minister Abel Prieto, who attended the inauguration of the office, highlighted the talent and ethical values of the two American artists. He stressed that both artistes have paid high price for their solidarity and faithfulness to their own principles. Glover and Belafonte officially inaugurated the new venue.
