“Before their arrest, the assembled group of congressmen, religious leaders and cultural icons spoke about the humanitarian crisis faced by hundreds of thousands of Sudanese who have been prevented from receiving international aid by president Bashir,” the Washington Post writes.

Clooney and the group of protesters stepped onto embassy grounds after giving short speeches, at which point they were instructed that they must leave or be arrested. On the third warning, officers told the group they were under arrest, and the protestors lined up to get handcuffed and were removed to a waiting van,” the Post added.

Soooo Seeexy !!!!

where’s his dad, Nick? Apparently he was also arrested.
Protesting for a noble cause.
what punishment ensues?
this is fascism.

I agree, Amanda!

preying on him... @ 03/16/2012 at 11:48 am

wow! I’d love to spend a night in a county jail cell with george…

it s all bcs he didnt get oscar this year))))

Stooge. Just like Jolie and Penn. How about the injustice from America, Georgie boy? Why dont u protest about that?

Serves him right! First they destroyed Middle East, now they are after Africa! USA you have plenty of oil in the country, just out of other continents!

mmmm….. he looks like a scruffy, dirty white boy.

What Amanda said.

Wow! George the Gnome finally has some liberal street cred! Pity it is not 1969. It is 2012 out there George. You are several decades too late. I feel bad for the Sudanese, but what about the people who are suffering all across this country? What about the people and towns who lost their families in the recent mid-west tornados and storms?!?

@Lexi: Don’t forget “old.” ;)

@XYZ: hey, he can’t save the world. He’s not a Messiah.
He takes on come causes.
Important ones.
Sudan was close to Nick’s heart.
and… it’s rich in oil. Libya too.


I agree with you & Amanda

to Amanda

alt least George is living by his convictions and he does care about what’s happening in Sudan. and you???

Wolfgang Gunnerson @ 03/16/2012 at 11:56 am

sack your lousy b*itch PR team, George.
Some of C.U.Next.Tuesdays posting above!! <– acronym
Not all of them….
These b*itches have been given the right to write whatever they like & when someone genuinely posts, they bully him out. Like stepping on their toes. Or they'll be out of work.
They're discrediting you again.


AMEN! You said it all – so right. When are these “Hollywood elite” going to start caring about America & our people – which, by the way, have made them very rich and famous. So sick of the “Hollywood phonies” (n ot all are – but we all know which ones are the phonies).
