Prior to his arrest, Clooney spoke out against the country’s treatment towards it’s people, telling the crowd, “the (Sudanese) government in Khartoum to stop randomly killing its own innocent men, women and children. Stop raping them, and stop starving them.”

After being asked to move from the private property three times, George and the other protesters were cuffed and taken away by police escort.
