Actress Jane Fonda Arrested In Washington D.C. While Protesting

As recent reports say, Hanoi Jane Fonda was arrested in Washington D.C. signaling a new round of protests for the aging social justice warrior.

Earlier, Jane Fonda had promised she would start getting involved in more direct actions and recently moved to Washington to follow through on her pledge.

She vowed to get arrested if she had to and it looks like she meant it as she just got cuffed and stuffed.

The Hollywood Reporter said that the actress was demonstrating on the Capitol with the group Oil Change International.

After pledging to hold weekly demonstrations over climate change, Jane Fonda was arrested on Friday as she was among the people protesting in Washington, D.C. on the Capitol. Video of the actress being placed in handcuffs and escorted to a police vehicle was recently posted to social media.

“Today, the United States Capitol Police arrested 16 individuals for unlawfully demonstrating on the East Front of the U.S. Capitol,” Eva Malecki, spokeswoman for the Capitol police told The Hollywood Reporter. All were charged with crowding, obstructing or incommoding, she said.

The actress was protesting with the group Oil Change International over the climate crisis. “I will be on the Capitol every Friday, rain or shine, inspired and emboldened by the incredible movement our youth have created,” Jane Fonda posted on her own website on Thursday.

Fonda has been a political activist for many years and a stanch opponent of oil developments.
