Climate Protest in D.C
According to Fire Drill Fridays, Friday’s protest was Jane Fonda’s last before she returns to Los Angeles. The 81-year-old actress and long-time activist has been hosting weekly climate change protests in Washington, D.C. for months.
Last Sunday, Phoenix used his Golden Globes acceptance speech — he took home the award for best actor in a drama motion picture for “Joker” — to speak about the importance of fighting the climate crisis. He thanked the Hollywood Foreign Press for serving a fully plant-based menu at the ceremony, “recognizing and acknowledging the link between animal agriculture and climate change.”
Each week, the protests are centered around a different theme. This week focused on holding financial institutions accountable for their role in financing the fossil fuel industry.
Twitter videos show Phoenix, along with Fonda, Sheen, actress and activist Susan Sarandon, supermodel Amber Valletta, actress June Diane Raphael and hundreds of activists marching in protest on the steps of the Capitol and at Chase Bank.
Charges and Arrested
Fire Drill Fridays, the name of Fonda’s weekly initiative, confirmed that the two actors were arrested this week. The US Capitol Police verified that 147 people were arrested in Friday’s protest, but did not provide a list of names.
They were all charged with crowding, obstructing or incommoding, a spokesperson for the department.
In a speech to fellow protesters, Phoenix called out the meat and dairy industries for their role in the climate crisis, according to the Fire Drill Fridays’ Twitter account.
“Let our country awake,” proclaimed Sheen, in an emotional speech calling for action on climate change.
