Jane Fonda Just Got Arrested Again
This is the activist's second arrest in relation to her "Fire Drill Fridays" climate change protest
Today on Capitol Hill, alongside her Frankie and Grace costar Sam Waterson and other protestors, Fonda was arrested just outside U.S. Capitol building for "unlawful demonstration."
If this sounds familiar, it's because it is. Just last week Fonda was arrested under the same charges by Capitol Police. In fact, Fonda plans to continue this pattern for the foreseeable future.
Speaking with the Washington Post last week, she detailed her weekly protest for climate change.
"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," she said in conversation with the publication. "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."
Watch a video from today's rally and the subsequent arrest below.
