Jane Fonda was arrested in Washington, D.C., on Friday for protesting climate change.
The arrest came after the Grace and Frankie star launched her "Fire Drill Fridays" civil disobedience campaign, demanding urgent action to battle climate change.
"She will be joined at every 'Fire Drill Friday' through at least mid-January by celebrities, scientists, economists and people from impacted communities who will speak and some of whom will invite arrest," a press release sent out early Friday stated. "Inspired by the growing movement of young climate strikers, Fonda decided to move to the nation's capital for four months to take up their baton."
"Change is coming by design or by disaster," Fonda added. "A Green New Deal that transitions off fossil fuels provides the design. They say it's not realistic, that it's Socialism. That's what they said about Franklin Roosevelt's New Deal, and we got Social Security and a middle class."
According to Mike Valerio, a local White House reporter with CBS station WUSA who was on site, Fonda was planning to be arrested while protesting climate change political paralysis on Capitol Hill. "She tells us she'll be here *every* Friday into 2020 — demonstrate, get arrested, repeat," he tweeted.
This isn't the first time Fonda has been arrested, however. Many may recall her 1970 arrest, which happened when the actress was on a speaking tour for an anti-Vietnam War campaign.
