Post George Clooney Arrested
George Clooney arrested, handcuffed, outside Sudan embassy in D.C.

Quote:
No, it wasn't for a movie. Actor George Clooney, long a political activist, was arrested and handcuffed outside the Sudanese embassy in Washington for protesting the country's blockage of food and aid to its own starving people.
Clooney's father, journalist Nick Clooney, 78, was with him and was also arrested, as were Martin Luther King III, NAACP President Ben Jealous, comedian and activist Dick Gregory, Rep. Jim McGovern (D-Mass.), Rep. Jim Moran (D-Va.), Rep. John Olver (D-Mass.), Rep. Al Green (D-Texas) and former Rep. Tom Andrews (D-Mass.). The group was restrained with plastic handcuffs and taken away by police...........

Very cool as usual for Clooney.

I don't think it is true though that US is the most generous country in the world, at least in terms of aid-dollars per GDP. I think they are behind many countries.

It is a good statement and helps to show the horrible things that are going on in the Sudan. I admire Clooney for his stance and actions.

This is just another in a long line of people trying to show people that they care about things out of their control. Pointless.
