Happy birthday to Jane Fonda – in jail?
The Oscar winner, who turns 82 on Saturday, was arrested for a fifth time in Washington, D.C. Friday as part of her ongoing climate change march.
Prior to her arrest, she gave a speech in front of a sign that read, ‘Happy 82nd birthday, Jane!’
Fonda has been protesting weekly during her Fire Drill Fridays since announcing she was moving to Washington “to be closer to the epicenter of the fight for our climate.” Her participation has ended in multiple arrests.
Fire Drill Fridays reports the “Grace & Frankie” star was arrested alongside several other protesters Friday. Of the 138 arrested, two were kept overnight, Fonda’s rep Ira Arlook told USA TODAY, adding Fonda was released later that night.
The group sang ‘Happy birthday’ to Fonda as she was led away in handcuffs.
