Jane Fonda arrested 3 weeks in a row for climate protests, this time with Ted Danson

By

Inspired by 16-year-old Greta Thunberg, who has been striking from school every Friday for more than a year in a movement known as Fridays for Future, Jane Fonda has begun her own movement for her own generation: Fire Drill Fridays. The past few Fridays, the legendary actress — along with some famous friends — has been arrested on the steps of the U.S. Capitol.

"I’m inspired by @GretaThunberg and the young people who came out in unprecedented numbers, behaving like the mature adults in the room," Fonda, 81, wrote on Instagram last month. "Greta has called on us to get out of our comfort zones, stop business as usual and start behaving like we’re in a crisis, like our house is on fire...because it is. So I’m moving to DC to take more direct action. Stay tuned."
