George Clooney and his father were arrested today during a protest outside the Sudanese Embassy, and the actor said he has asked President Barack Obama to engage China on stopping a humanitarian crisis in northern Africa.
The Oscar winning actor followed in the footsteps of many Hollywood activists on Friday morning, getting arrested for civil disobedience and taken away by police when he was protesting outside the Sudanese Embassy in Washington, DC.
"They were protesting the violence committed by the government of Sudan on its own innocent men, women and children," Clooney's publicist said in a statement published by TMZ. "They were demanding they allow humanitarian aid into the country before it becomes the largest humanitarian crisis in the world."
