Wowlebrity/forever icon Jane Fonda arrested outside the US Capitol during today’s massive climate change protest. She was placed in handcuffs and escorted into a police van along with a number of other protestors.
Jane was demonstrating with the group Oil Change International over the climate change crisis. The protest is part of Jane’s “Fire Drill Fridays” initiative — she’s vowed to protest outside the Capitol every Friday, rain or shine, and says she’s been inspired by Swedish teen activist Greta Thunberg and her weekly climate strikes across the globe.
Capitol Police say they’ve so far arrested 16 people, including Jane, for unlawfully demonstrating charging them for crowding, obstructing or incommoding (creating an inconvenience).
