POLITICS - Actor/philanthropist George Clooney was arrested today outside Sudan’s embassy in Washington for protesting against the Sudanese dictator / mass murderer President Omar al-Bashir.
Omar al-Bashir is currently engaged in ethnic cleansing in South Kordofan in eastern Sudan, in and around the Nuba mountains.
For George Clooney it is basically its the equivalent of protesting against Hitler and then being arrested for it. For the people living in the Nuba mountains it is genocide.
President Barack Obama recently visited the affected region, but the USA has yet to take any diplomatic action on the topic of Sudan's genocide.
