Jane Fonda plans climate change civil disobedience on the Capitol steps
Two-time Academy Award and seven-time Golden Globe winner Jane Fonda has played many roles, most recently on television as the wife of a gay husband who comes out about his closeted relationship with his best friend.And sure enough, Jane Fonda Arrested at U.S. Capitol During Climate Change Protest
But this week, Fonda takes on the role of climate activist and brings it to a new stage: the Capitol, where she will demonstrate until she is arrested. And she will do the same thing for 14 Fridays — until she has to film another season of the television drama “Grace and Frankie.”
Actress Jane Fonda has been arrested on the steps of the U.S. Capitol during a climate change protest. According to WUSA9, on Friday morning, Fonda and dozens of young activists took to the Capitol to demand urgent action on climate change, and after a tense encounter with authorities, the 81-year-old actress was arrested. Watch the video of Fonda’s arrest above.So, she's going to protest climate change by commuting from her California four-bedroom, seven-bath townhouse that spans 6,679 square feet weekly to Washington D.C. to be arrested every Friday? I'm sure D.C. will appreciate the money from the fines. No carbon footprint from that house, or the weekly transcontinental two way flight. Back to WaPoo:
“I’m going to take my body, which is kind of famous and popular right now because of the [television] series and I’m going to go to D.C. and I’m going to have a rally every Friday,” Fonda said in an interview with The Washington Post. “It’ll be called ‘Fire Drill Friday.’ And we’re going to engage in civil disobedience and we’re going to get arrested every Friday.”But, thank you for at least reminding us of the good old days when you were young and hot, and not a political activist.
