It’s official: 16-year-old climate change activist has inspired 81-year-old Jane Fonda to take action — every Friday through the end of the year:
Saying she's been inspired by Greta Thunberg, Jane Fonda tells @ABC she's going to hold a weekly protest in DC on climate change: "I'm moving here. I'm going to be here through Thanksgiving, and Christmas, sleep, rain, whatever it is."

The actress/activist of Vietnam War notoriety was arrested today in the first of what might come to be known as Fonda Fridays:

The “no new fossil fuels” sign is a nice touch. Now that rich celebs have spent decades stomping out massive carbon footprints, it’s time for everybody else to sacrifice!
So multi-millionairess jet-setting carbon-stomping Jane Fonda is so concerned about climate change she gets arrested in a protest.
Who says her acting days are over?

She must need some publicity.

That’s always a possibility.
How did she get to DC? Or does she own a climate friendly home in DC?

We’re not sure where Fonda’s staying in DC, but she appears to have expansive digs in California:
After splitting from her longtime partner Richard Perry and saying goodbye to the home they shared in Beverly Hills, Jane Fonda has a new place. The Grace and Frankie actress recently purchased this $5.45 million Mediterranean-style house in Los Angeles, reports Trulia. The four-bedroom, seven-bath townhouse spans 6,679 square feet.
Nice carbon footprint!
