Clooney’s publicist Stan Rosenfield said in an interview: He was taken away in handcuffs after being arrested as he was leading a protest in front of the Sudanese embassy in D.C. when he was hauled away by secret service agents.
“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.”
According to the report, George feels good about the arrest because it puts the spotlight on the crisis.
Clooney’s humanitarian work includes his advocacy of finding a resolution for the Darfur conflict, raising funds for the 2010 Haiti earthquake, 2004 Tsunami, and 9/11 victims, and creating documentaries such as Sand and Sorrow to raise awareness about international crises.
