Actress, activist, and Vietnam-era traitor Jane Fonda proudly noted that she was unable to accept a film award on Friday because she had been arrested in Washington D.C. for her weekly climate change protests.
“I am receiving the Stanley Kubrick Britannia Award For Excellence in Film,” Fonda said in a pre-taped video. “I am so honored, I can’t even believe it. I am so grateful. It’s thrilling. I am sorry I’m not there, but as you may have heard I have been getting arrested.”
“I decided that I needed to do more, and so I’ve moved to D.C. for four months and trying to heighten the sense of urgency that there needs to be,” she added. “This is a crisis not just here but all over the world… Anyway that’s why I’m not with you tonight, but it’s for a good cause and my heart is with you and I’m so grateful.”
Fonda recently declared she planned to get arrested every Friday protesting climate change and that we should “bring governments to a halt if we can’t make them do the right thing.”
