George Clooney Speaks Out On His Recent Arrest!
The actor hit up all of the talk shows on Sunday to bring more attention to the violence in Sudan, including CNN├óΓé¼Γäós Fareed Zakaria GPS, NBC├óΓé¼Γäós Meet the Press and Fox News Sunday.
Ever the humanitarian, Clooney says:
├óΓé¼┼ôI grew up in a family that believed that ├óΓé¼┬ª your job was to be involved with your fellow man. You have a responsibility to participate in the human condition, one way or another.├óΓé¼┬¥
Amen to that!!
Clooney believes a joint diplomatic action by the U.S. and China could put an END to the violence Sudan is facing at the hands of their president, Omar Al-Bashir.
Though the actor stands strongly on his beliefs, don’t think you’ll see him running for office anytime soon! Clooney feels he can have MORE influence as an activist rather than a politician.
├óΓé¼┼ôThere is no outside influence for me. I can actually have an opinion and it may not fit what the U.N. wants and it may not fit what other people want, and I can say, ├óΓé¼╦£This is what I think is right├óΓé¼Γäó and stand by it. I think it’s a lot easier than running for office. I don’t have any interest in that.├óΓé¼┬¥
We love his passion for this issue!! It’s always nice to see celebs using their influence for the greater good!
