Jane Fonda arrested during climate change protest

Jane Fonda arrested during climate change protest

Fonda, who has a long history of activism, was filmed being handcuffed outside the US Capitol building on Friday before being led away to a police vehicle.

Before the arrest, Fonda said that she moved to the city to protest climate change.

"She read the read the [Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change] report and she realized that the crisis was barreling straight at us, like a train, and looked around and people weren't behaving appropriately", Fonda said. Throughout her life, she's voiced her opinion about several controversial topics. The actress has vowed to protest each week "rain or shine". Her hands appeared to be zip-tied.

'We cannot continue to stand for this'.

She was infamous for her protests against the United States government during the Vietnam War, including when she flew to North Vietnam and posed for photos with enemy soldiers, prompting her to be ripped as "Hanoi Jane".

In 2015, Fonda said she regretted taking the picture.

'It so traumatized her that she stopped eating. I hadn't realized that she stopped eating and speaking for nearly a year. The cameras flashed. I got up, and as I started to walk back to the vehicle with the translator, the implication of what had just happened hit me.

She said that she plans to protest this same way for the next 14 Fridays.

In 2011, she also wrote: "I hardly even thought about where I was sitting". I did not expect it would be this bad. And the ego is a big thing'.

In a video posted to YouTube, Fonda can be seen climbing the steps of the capital, and then turning around to the crowd and saying, "Arrest me".

In a freaky note, she even said that she considered taking "some gorgeous woman climate activists" to try to sway the President.

"I tried to get to [Trump] on the climate right afterwards", Fonda added, noting how she called both Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, but they did "nothing". "You can save the world"'.
