Sally Field Arrested At Jane Fonda’s Weekly Climate Change Protest In DC


Hollywood legend Sally Field on Friday joined a growing number of celebrities arrested at a weekly Washington protest on the steps of the U.S. Capitol against climate change inaction led by fellow actress Jane Fonda.

Field, along with environmentalist Winona LaDuke, urged Americans to get out of their comfort zones to fight the climate crisis.

“I come with my heart and my voice,” Field said at the protest. “I am a mother. I am a grandmother. The time is now. We cannot sit back in our comfort zones, on our couches, and wonder, what can we do? We can get out, we can do something.”

Field said it’s “time to get out and scream loud” about climate change.

Field was led away by a Capitol Hill police officer as she raised her cuffed hands in triumph.

Twenty-five other climate activists were also arrested at the protest, now in its 10th week.

According to HuffPost:

Actors Ted Danson, Diane Lane, Piper Perabo and Sam Waterston have all been arrested at the Fire Drill Friday protests. Fonda has been busted a number of times.

The inspiration for the weekly protests was teenage climate change activist Greta Thunberg, Fonda has said. This week the focus was the expected effect from climate change on workers.
