Glass has formed a group called ‘Never Again Ever!’, a campaign to support the grandchildren of Holocaust survivors across the world, saying the trauma of the extermination camps continues to haunt the descendants of those who suffered there.’ According to Glass ‘other grandchildren of survivors have experienced clinical depression, anxiety, addiction and eating disorders, which they blame on the impact of their families constantly retelling stories of the horrific events their relatives endured.’
Glass and other activists from the organisation ACTUP, ‘dumped half a tonne of steaming cow dung on the doorstep of UKIP's South London office’, due to Nigel Farage's proposal to ban HIV-positive migrants from entering the UK.
Glass and a group of activists stormed a pub in which the then-leader of UKIP, Nigel Farage, was having a meal with his family. Quote from Farage ‘My children ran away and hid. The landlord called the police who came quickly and later brought them back to my home. They also attacked my car as my wife drove me off.’. The mob shouted anti-Farage slogans within the pub. Dan Glass denied Farage’s children had been scared off, saying: ‘He was sitting on his own and left on his own. We didn’t see any kids.’
