George Clooney arrested during protest in D.C.

HollywoodNews.com: George Clooney has been arrested in Washington D.C. while out protesting in regard to the Sudan crisis where innocent men, women and children have been hurt.

Clooney was arrested with a number of other people who were protesting in front of the Sudanese embassy, states TMZ. Clooney was arrested for crossing a police line which is a misdemeanor offense.

His publicist has commented on the arrest: “They were protesting the violence committed by the government of Sudan on its own innocent men, women and children. They were demanding they allow humanitarian aid into the country before it becomes the largest humanitarian crisis in the world.”

According to ENOUGHPROJECT.ORG “months of military attacks by the Government of Sudan on their own people have prevented crop production, causing near-famine conditions. The attacks themselves continue to kill, injure, displace and terrorize innocent civilians while the international community continues to stand by.”

On March 7, Rep. Jim McGovern introduced the Sudan Peace, Security, and Accountability Act of 2012. It’s a strong piece of legislation that needs your support to get passed.

“We’re calling on the United States and world leaders to stop the violence and prevent hundreds of thousands of people from starving.”
