Jane Fonda, Sam Waterston Arrested During D.C. Climate Change Protest

Grace and Frankie co-stars Jane Fonda and Same Waterston were arrested in Washington, DC on Friday during a climate change protest. 

The duo were participating in Fire Drill Fridays at the U.S. Capitol, a weekly protest launched by Fonda Oct. 11 in support of the Green New Deal, a bill addressing climate change and economic inequality. 

The movement's Twitter page confirmed the arrests. 


Fonda, who was arrested last week for participating as well, was inspired to launch Fire Drill Fridays after reading Naomi Klein's book On Fire: The {Burning} Case for a Green New Deal, she wrote in a blog post.
