Fridays for Future, the organization started by youth climate activist Greta Thunberg, protested at the Capitol Building on Friday in Washington, D.C., resulting in the arrest of actress, fitness advocate and activist Jane Fonda.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Fonda "was protesting with the group Oil Change International over the climate crisis", and was among those arrested and charged with "crowding, obstructing or incommoding".

Fonda was joined by several others in this first protest including Naomi Klein, an activist, filmmaker, author and the Gloria Steinem Chair in Media, Culture and Feminist Studies at Rutgers University.

The protest, organized by Fonda and Code Pink, is part of what the organizers are calling Fire Drill Fridays, planned events created to focus attention on the impact of human activity on the climate as well as the lack of government response to the crisis. In another video, Fonda can be seen being escorted away by Capitol Hill police, hands zip-tied.

Online, Fonda was criticized for the move, with many calling her "Hanoi Jane", a nickname she picked up for her protests during the Vietnam War.

'It so traumatized her that she stopped eating.

While Fonda is an accomplished actress with multiple Oscars and Golden Globes, her career has also been followed by controversy. Fonda said she would like to "draw connections" by discussing how violence against women increases in communities suffering from climate change. "And that really hit me". "Well, you know who that rules out".
