What startling news. Maybe George Clooney has some Armenian in his roots, he has the looks for it. I don’t know, but this is another member of the elite, rich, entertainment industry I avoid like the plague. I know, I know, he’s so handsome and seems like such a great activist. I don’t agree with his politics in the slightest, nevertheless, I have agreed with him on some of his causes. This one in particular gets a big A plus from me. Way to go, George – and not to mention the other members of Congress willing to stand up for their constituents. Certainly, isn’t this what we are paying them for anyway?
WASHINGTON—Actor George Clooney, his father, as well as four members of Congress were among those arrested Friday at a protest in front of the Sudanese Embassy organized by United to End Genocide and co-sponsored by the Armenian National Committee of America, among others.
Also arrested for civil disobedience were representatives Jim McGovern (D-Mass.), James Moran (D-Va.), John Olver (D-Mass.) and Al Green (D-Texas), as well as Tom Andrews, President of United to End Genocide and John Prendergast of the Enough Project and the president of the NAACP, Ben Jealous. Also participating in the protest was Martin Luther King III.
