Jane Fonda Continues Climate Protest With Rosanna Arquette and Catherine Keener

There really is no stopping Jane Fonda.

The Hollywood icon has been arrested for the fourth time in four weeks while raising awareness about the climate emergency.

Inspired by teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg, Jane has been taking part in Fire Drill Fridays – a weekly gathering outside the U.S Capitol building in Washington D.C to call for urgent government action.

This week, the group focused on all the ways women are leading climate solutions from organising strikes à la Greta to improving agricultural practices and running for office.

“These climate emergencies offer us a chance to choose between succumbing to the hatred that our President is spewing and turning on one another,” Fonda said to the crowd “or coming together in shared humanity and supporting each other. Let’s always choose love and empathy and our shared humanity.”

The 81-year-old was taking part in a sit-in with fellow actresses Rosanna Arquette and Catherine Keener inside the Hart Senate office building before being arrested. They were all charged with crowding or obstructing the area.

Last week, Ted Danson was arrested alongside Jane Fonda. The week before, it was her Grace & Frankie co-star Sam Waterston.

Can’t help but wonder, who will stand up for the Earth with Ms Fonda next week?
