George Clooney to get arrested at Sudan embassy

Update, 11:08 a.m.: George Clooney and several of his activist colleagues have been arrested. Get the latest updates here.

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.
