Jane Fonda loudly supports busted protesters… but stays above the fray

Jane Fonda’s still walking the walk — marching with and sitting in with environmental protesters in D.C. — but now when the cops move in, Jane heads for higher ground.

The iconic actress and activist was there to stage the sixth consecutive Fire Drill Fridays protest on Capitol Hill. As you know, Jane’s been arrested 4 times, but she did not end up in handcuffs this time. Police moved in when the group sat and chanted in the rotunda of the Capitol, and warned demonstrators they were about to be rounded up.

At that point, Jane was high above on a balcony … still chanting along with her comrades in protest — but steering clear of arrest. It’s the second week she hasn’t been arrested — and as we reported last week … that’s exactly what the protest planners want.
