George Clooney to get arrested at Sudan embassy
By The Reliable Source

George Clooney outside of the White House on Thursday. (Jim Watson/Getty Images)
If all goes according to plan Friday morning, George Clooney will get hauled away to jail from outside the Sudan embassy’s Massachusetts Avenue embassy, for protesting the country’s blockade of humanitarian aide. The actor and several activist colleagues (including Rep. Jim Moran, Enough Project’s John Prendergast and Martin Luther King III) have arranged for a little non-violent civil disobedience. By standing on the embassy’s private property, they’re likely to get cuffed, arrested and charged. Which is always the most interesting kind of celebvocate photo-op.

Hey just realized, someone will be putting handcuffs on him - right? I think he should ask them if he can keep them - they might come in handy later.

If not, then they should put them on eBay and sell them for charity.

I would assume that with the notice that is being given to the embassy, they will lock the place down and ignore the protest outside. If they aren't trying to get into the embassy, I can't imagine that the police will become involved by arresting people - they will be there for safety purposes but I really doubt George will get arrested.

It isn't in the best interest of those at the embassy to have any protestors - especially one as high profile and vocal about the situation in the Sudan as George - arrested. That then becomes a lead news story and the it keeps the media attention on them and the situation in the Sudan which they would very much like people to stop talking about. If he were to be arrested, he would be the star guest on so many tv shows and he would keep talking about what is happening there and the press would cover the story for longer.

Right watching... thanks Smile The Sudan Situation has been volatile and is far more sensitive because of the different players involved... the layers... besides the fact that people, the masses can be used as easy targets... IT is even more delicate in the US because of the African American population and several Sudanese / others from that region who have gained on positions and have a "voice"... and can act on it if they deem fit... they are already hurt about what is being done to their people... and that is understandable...

George's visit can easily be sidelined as a "celebrity" visit, yes just like any other, IF it got handled with a sense of frivolity... and yes, he stands a greater chance of becoming scapegoat target himself!! And NO, the China factor need not be highlighted... not required... not all fact... !! And if the US foreign policy deems certain co-relation patterns irrelevant based on US security priority issues, these will also become non-existent... "Diplomacy" and the players in it, already has the facts you have George, and much more in depth than you might realize... also remember that President Obama cares for Sudan at a deeper level than you do George!!! And so my earlier notes last night... just highlight Sudan, bring it back in focus... that is all you have to do for now... with your flashing star power... Keep the rest behind closed doors!!!

They will probably ignore what is going on outside they won't do anything to cause even more bad press. And arresting George would give them lot's of bad press although it would be great for us! A mugshot and lot's of attention.

DC is the land of the protest. I remember coming off the metro (subway) once, and someone was at the top directing people saying, protest to the right, folk festival to the left.

Most the time people don't get arrested. Still I guess it is possible because the Sudanese embassy is just a row house on Mass Ave. No real gates to close like some, and if that is there intent they could be. We will see.

The right of peaceful assembly is Constitutional. They'd have to be disruptive in some fashion to warrant being taken into custody.

I'm sure Stan is involved. George wouldn't do something of this magnitude without the invovlement of his press agent. Stan probably was the author of the press release about Clooney being arrested. It's good press and keeps the attention on the issue.

George Clooney, others to protest at Sudan embassy over allegations of humanitarian crisis
By Associated Press, Updated: Friday, March 16, 8:19 PM

WASHINGTON — Actor George Clooney will highlight a protest planned for Friday at Sudan’s embassy in Washington.

The protesters accuse Sudan’s president, Omar al-Bashir, of provoking a humanitarian crisis and blocking food and aid from entering the Nuba Mountains in the county’s border region with South Sudan.

Others expected to attend the protest include Clooney’s father, Nick; NAACP President Ben Jealous; Martin Luther King III and congressmen including Virginia Democrat Jim Moran.

Another Virginia congressman, Republican Frank Wolf, returned from a trip to South Sudan last month and received reports from refugees accusing al-Bashir of orchestrating a campaign of ethnic cleansing, mass murder and rape.

Protest is starting to get some traction. There is a Facebook page set up for the event and twitter is starting to get more references to the event.

Facebook link


Stop Sudan’s Weapons of Mass Starvation: March 16th Day of Action
Public Event · By United to End Genocide.
Today 9:30am until 11:00am.

Stop Sudan's bombing, violence and use of food as a weapon of war against innocent men, women and children in South Kordofan and Blue Nile.

Together on March 16, we will protest the Sudanese government’s actions and call on the United States and world leaders to stop the violence and prevent hundreds of thousands of people from starving.

Half a million people in South Kordofan and Blue Nile are at risk of starvation beginning in March because Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir – a war criminal wanted for genocide – is employing the very same tactics to kill, displace, and starve civilians in South Kordofan and Blue Nile that he used in Darfur. The international community’s failure to respond early enabled Bashir to murder 300,000 people in Darfur – we can’t let him do it again. The United States must immediately do everything in its power to stop Bashir from using starvation as a weapon against civilians.

United to End Genocide President Tom Andrews will join U.S. lawmakers including Representative Jim McGovern (D-MA), Martin Luther King III and many grassroots leaders including the Enough Campaign, American Jewish World Service, Amnesty International along with hundreds of activists to block entrance to the Sudanese Embassy. Add your voice of protest and Join Us.



Cute comment on the wall

Daniel Solomon
In case you needed another excuse to attend Stop Sudan’s Weapons of Mass Starvation: March 16th Day of Action this Friday, the Cloonz will make an appearance. Two weeks ago, New York Times; next week, US Weekly.

As a Washington resident I would not worry too much about George. This is a place where people do come to protest, in front of Embassies or Congress or White House. If George steps in the immediate "private" area in front of the Embassy he may be "temporary" arrested (that's what he wants right?). The fact is, you can't have dinner sitting next to Michelle Obama on a Wednesday and be in jail on a Friday. It just won't happen....but it's good noise...for the cause.

In most of these protests, unless it's violent or destroys property, protesters are arrested and let go a few hours later. I don't think they are handcuffed, although sometimes they use those plastic zip cables. Should be interesting, but not dangerous as their intentions are peaceful. Since he wants to be arrested, I say he should go for it! I don't know -- the police may have to arrest protesters if they enter private property during the protest even if the property owner does not complain. I would assume it violstes the term of the protest permit, which I imagine they have gotten. I'm sure they have it planned out. If it 's up to Sudan, they should ignore it.

Nevertheless it's a good plan for him to join the protest and all we can hope is that it has some effect long term.
Also of course that he's not becoming too notorious and therefore attracts some nutter who wants their 15 minutes of fame.

from what I have read the plan is to trespass on the "private" area. It will be a peaceful protest but the fact that they are trespassing could automatically lead to them being removed by the police. I think the problem is that now this haas been publicized that George will be there there will be masses of people and paparazzi just to see him, and as we know the more people that are there the more chaotic the protest will get. this may be where the problems will start. I really hope that people who go to see George will have enough respect for him and this cause and not be party to anything getting out of control.

Was watching live stream. Nick was with George. John Prendagast was arrested at 10:43 am and George and Nick arrested at 10:46. Taken away in handcuffs. There is lots of support from attendees. Lots of police escorts. I wouldn't worry too much about George's safety. If he thought for a moment there was any danger, he wouldn't have taken his father.
