By now, most people have probably heard about George Clooney's arrest on Friday, March 16, outside the Sudanese Embassy in Washington, DC. In addition to Clooney, several others were arrested, including his father Nick Clooney, Martin Luther King III, the president of the NAACP and several members of Congress (Al Green, Jim McGovern, Jim Moran and John Olver). These men were joined in protest by a reported crowd of roughly 100 people. The Washington Post reports, “[t]he group was protesting the Sudanese hunger crisis, accusing President Omar al-Bashir of blocking food and humanitarian assistance from reaching hundreds of thousands of Sudanese.”
