Hollywood actress and climate-change crusader Jane Fonda was arrested outside the US Capitol Friday while protesting global warming; with online footage showing the activist taken away in hand-restraints.
“The arrest comes after Fonda, a liberal Hollywood celebrity long known for activism and outspokenness, said she soon planned to leave Tinseltown and relocate to the nation’s capital, at least temporarily, inspired by young climate change activists,” reports Fox News.
“So, I moved here to do an action every Friday called ‘Fire Drill Friday’ because Greta Thunberg says ‘our house is on fire we have to behave appropriately,’” Fonda told reporters last week. “So, we have a fire drill every Friday and every Friday at 11:00 we will have a different focus on climate.”

If necessary, we’re gonna have to be able to bring things to a halt,” she added.
