George Clooney
and his father Nick have been arrested in Washington, D.C. during a protest over the Sudan crisis.

Clooney was leading a protest in front of the Sudanese embassy in D.C. when he was hauled away by secret service agents.


0316_george_clooney_subassetClooney's publicist Stan Rosenfield tells TMZ, "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."

Sources connected with George tell us he feels good about the arrest because it puts the spotlight on the crisis. Moments before the arrest, George was mobbed by reporters (below) -- claiming, he was protesting to raise awareness about the "Sudanese government committing atrocities on their own people."

0316_george_clooney_subasset_launch
We're told a dozen people got arrested including congressmen, leaders of the human rights community, Sudanese citizens, Martin Luther King III and George's father ... Nick Clooney.

Clooney recently shot a short documentary about the situation in Sudan, which he released on EnoughProject.org. WARNING -- Video contains VERY graphic content.

I think a lot of you have hate in your blood. Here is someone that is a celebrity and is trying to get national attention for a cause. What have you done lately?

I am NOT a liberal, but what George Clooney is doing is trying to put a spotlight on the continual murder of NON-MUSLIMS. THe arab sudenese are killing the black non-muslim sudanese. This should be everyone's concern. If you don't speak up for them today, who will be left to speak up for you tomorrow?

NO DISCLAIMER    

GEORGE CLOONEY is backed by a corrupt syndicate who arrange fake publicity agreements.

He is deceiving the public.
The "relationship" with Stacy Keibler is a LIE.

They make profit off her appearance fees and advertisements. 50% off her revenue.

Trying to get as many commercial/ public engagements in, while her name is linked to Clooney.

HE IS LYING TO THE WORLD.
LYING TO HIS FANS.
HIS PARENTS ARE TOO POLITE TO QUESTION HIM. They have faith in their son & turn a blind eye to "his public business affairs."

SHAME ON YOU, GEORGE CLOONEY.
SHAME ON THE DECEPTION YOU LEAD.
HE DID THE SAME WITH ELISABETTA CANALIS.

No, he's not gay. THIS IS SIMPLY ABOUT MONEY.

*I have not signed a confidentiality clause, so I can post this*

Get so tired of these actors portraying themselves as world leaders. I'd like to know who made them think they're brilliant in every way. Have news for you, George...parking your body in one place and not moving is NOT doing a damn thing for the cause. Just gets your mug in the press again. Lose your ego, pal. The money you blow traveling all over the world could be better spent. If you're truly worried about these problems, do your part and get your hands dirty without a camera there to do***ent your effort. Lose your nice clothes for a while and put your money and life where your mouth is. If you don't, this is all just a big blow job.

OBAMA CLAUS     

George: come out , come out wherever you are. These cheap Hollywood ploys don't work any more, everybody's wise to them. YAWN , he is promoting some liberal Cause De Celeb , obvious. boring. boring .boring.


If he wants to actually do something , stop tryin to GIN UP the public sentiment, again, we're all wise to it. this crap has been happening in that country for THOUSANDS OF YEARS ...GIVE ME A FREAKIN BREAK. CHARITY BEGINS AT HOME.
