Maybe so. I thought it went something like this:
_WASHINGTON (AP) - Actor George Clooney and his father have been arrested at a protest outside the Sudanese 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.
Clooney, his father, Nick and others, including Democratic U.S. Rep. Jim Moran of Virginia and NAACP President Ben Jealous, were arrested after being warned three times not to cross a police line outside the embassy. They were handcuffed and placed into a U.S. Secret Service van.
Clooney said earlier that he hopes to draw more attention to the issue and that if action is not taken in the next three to four months "we're going to have a real humanitarian disaster."_, but I may be wrong.
Warned three times not to cross a police line. Ignored it. Get arrested. It was a show. Instead of protesting and putting on said show, he could easily pump money into efforts that would make a real difference. Had he been more of a showboat and gotten onto Embassy/Sudanese soil, he'd be at their
As for drawing attention, nobody needs to be arrested to draw attention to anything any more. We have the internet. Things go viral overnight.
