VIDEO: Jane Fonda Arrested for 3rd Time By Capitol Police for Climate Protest

Jane Fonda has been arrested for the 3rd time by capitol police for holding another weekly climate change protest.

This time, she brought along “Cheers” star Ted Danson, who was also arrested.

The theme of this weeks protest was the restoration of oceans.

Jane Fonda says she is prepared for more arrests.

CBS news reports what do Jane Fonda, Sam Waterston and Ted Danson have in common? They’re all iconic actors — and they’ve all be arrested on the steps of the U.S. Capitol in recent weeks. For Fonda, this is the third Friday in a row she’s been photographed in her bright red coat as police put her in handcuffs.

The 81-year-old actress is leading a weekly climate change protest in Washington, D.C. she calls “Fire Drill Friday.” Fonda moved to Washington to fight against climate change, and each week’s protest features a special theme. This Friday, the focus was “Oceans Can’t Wait.”

Fonda’s pal Ted Danson joined her at the protest, and were both were arrested. Danson, 71, seemed to almost anticipate the arrest — he had a huge grin on his face as police led him away.

Capitol Police told CBS News a total of 32 individuals arrested for unlawfully demonstrating in the intersection of East Capitol and First Streets. They are charged with “Crowding, Obstructing or Incommoding,” police said.

It’s no secret that arrests at Fonda’s rallies are possible; they’re a regular occurrence. Just last week Fonda and her “Grace and Frankie” co-star Sam Waterston were arrested.

“We can do this!” 78-year-old Waterston said during the protest. “We need something to push for that’s as big as the problem.”

“This is an ongoing action to draw attention and a sense of urgency to the climate crisis,” Fonda said before her arrest last week. “Make no mistake, change is coming, whether we like it or not. Change is coming by disaster, or change is coming by design.”

Last Friday’s protest resulted in 17 people being taken into custody for unlawfully demonstrating, Capitol Police told CBS News.
