The Hill:

Jane Fonda was arrested Friday during a climate change protest on Capitol Hill.

“We have to be sure that the crisis that is climate change remains front and center like a ticking time bomb,” Fonda said, according to “We don’t have very much time, and it’s really urgent.”



“I’m going to take my body, which is kind of famous and popular right now because of the series and I’m going to go to D.C. and I’m going to have a rally every Friday,” Fonda told the Post.

Fonda pledged to continue the protests on the steps of the Capitol for the next 14 Fridays, and plans to continue to ignore requests by the Capitol Police to cease and desist.

“It’ll be called ‘Fire Drill Friday,'” she continued. “And we’re going to engage in civil disobedience and we’re going to get arrested every Friday.”

Fonda also said she will hold “online teach-ins” every Thursday to educate the public about climate change.

She told the Post she was inspired by 16-year-old climate change activist Greta Thunberg.

“Greta said we have to behave like it’s a crisis,” Fonda said. “We have to behave like our houses are on fire.”
