Dems, Clooney to protest Sudanese embassy Friday

Fresh from a trip to Sudan, Clooney appeared Wednesday before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to discuss the blockade and other alleged human rights abuses by the government. He said al-Bashir and his top lieutenants are perpetuating "a campaign of murder" on their own people.

"They're all charged with war crimes and are now proving themselves to be the greatest war criminals of this century by far," Clooney said.

Other activists scheduled to participate in Friday's protest include former Rep. Tom Andrews (D-Maine), president of United to End Genocide; Fred Kramer, head of Jewish World Watch; Martin Luther King III; Nick Clooney, George's father; and John Prendergast, co-founder of the Enough Project, who accompanied Clooney on his recent trip to Sudan.
