Jane Fonda, aka Hanoi Jane, found herself in the back of a police car and it appears to be intentional. She is trying to draw awareness to the climate change issue. She was inspired by none other than the angry child, Greta Thunberg.
“Fonda was among 16 people arrested on the Capitol steps Friday, according to U.S. Capitol police, Fox News has learned. The actress was charged with “crowding, obstructing or incommoding.” She was there to rally alongside other climate change activists.
According to video obtained by WUSA9 reporter Mike Valerio, U.S. Capitol police in Washington D.C. appear to take Fonda into custody with her hands zip-tied behind her back as a crowd of onlookers cheers. Reportedly, she was participating in a climate change protest.
“We love you Jane,” the crowd shouts in the video.
Reps for the actress did not return Fox News’ request for comment.
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.
And according to the Los Angeles Times, the 81-year-old actress had a goal in mind: to get arrested.
“…She claimed to have drawn inspiration from Greta Thunberg, the teenage climate-change activist from Sweden.”
“Fonda was released Friday afternoon before 3 p.m. EST. The actress stopped to speak with reporters about being holed up and explained her actions.
“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,'” said Fonda. “So, we have a fire drill every Friday and every Friday at 11:00 we will have a different focus on climate.”

This is by far her weakest protest considering what she has said and done before. I guess she got sick of being civil for so many years.
