George Clooney arrested in Washington at Sudan protest

Arrested yesterday in Washington where he demonstrated for the civilians of Sudan, the actor has been released on bail after spending only a few hours in jail.

Back from Southern Kordofan, he protested against what he called war crimes committed by the Sudanese armed forces opposed to an armed rebellion.

“It’s actually a humiliating thing to be arrested no matter what you do, but I’m glad to be standing here with my father,” Clooney said, as cited by the Daily Mail.

Just before his arrest, he told The Associated Press that he hoped to draw attention to the crisis in Sudan and had been impressed by the commitment and knowledge of the president on this issue.

The 50-year-old actor, his father Nick Clooney, 78, and other protesters had received three verbal warnings from the police not to cross a police line outside the embassy before being handcuffed and taken to a police van.

They only spent a few hours in custody and were released after paying a $100 fine.

Regarding his short jail stint, Clooney jokingly said: “It was rough, you can imagine. It is my first arrest… and let’s hope it’s my last.”

While handcuffed, George continued to criticize the plight of “innocent children” in Sudan.

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

“We are here really to ask two very simple questions. The first question is something immediate – and immediately we need humanitarian aid to be allowed into the Sudan before it becomes the worst humanitarian crisis in the world,” he said, according to a CNN report.
