George Clooney arrested at Sudan embassy (VIDEO)

By Simon Farnsworth 

Actor George Clooney has been arrested outside the Sudanese embassy in Washington DC after refusing to leave the embassy grounds during a planed protest.

The Hollywood A-Lister was taking part in a protest to warn of the current humanitarian crisis in the border region between Sudan and the newly formed South Sudan.

Clooney was one of many people arrested, including several Democrat politicians, for civil disobedience.

The actor is a well-known campaigner over the Sudanese crisis and has taken a number of trips to the region. Just yesterday, Clooney met with President Obama to discuss the worsening situation in Sudan.

Clooney said moments before his arrest: “We need humanitarian aid to be allowed into the Sudan before it becomes the worst humanitarian crisis in the world – immediately.

“The second thing we are here to ask is a very simple thing – it’s for the government in Khartoum to stop randomly killing its own innocent men, women and children.

“Stop raping them, and stop starving them. That’s all we ask.”

Clooney & co looked relaxed as the police arrested them. The protesters clearly planned to get arrested in an attempt to raise the profile of  the crisis in Sudan. A plan that has clearly worked thus far.
