"Death at a Funeral" star Danny Glover has been charged with trespassing after taking part in a noisy protest against a U.S. food giant in Maryland.

The actor was among a group of 12 people who were arrested by local armed police following a rally regarding unfair business practices outside the Sodexo Headquarters in Gaithersburg on Friday.

Protesters claim workers in the Sodexo cafeteria were being paid low wages and had had their civil rights violated.

Glover and his fellow campaigners were subsequently released after receiving citations and the actor remains upbeat about putting an end to the alleged rights violations.

Upon his release, the star told reporters, "We're moving to make some real positive changes."
