As initially broken via Ann Curry’s Twitter, it has been confirmed that actor George Clooney has indeed been arrested early Friday morning in Washington DC. Curry tweeted: “Under arrest: George Clooney and his father Nick for protesting Sudan’s attacks on its Nuba people. Arrested at Sudan’s embassy in DC.” It is no secret that the politically vocal Hollywood leading man has been leading a campaign against the Sudanese government and to bring peace to the people of Sudan.
A representative for the Oscar winning actor released the following statement: “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.”
