Lily Tomlin Arrested After Protesting with Friend Jane Fonda

Lily Tomlin was arrested on Friday (December 27) while joining her friend Jane Fonda for the final Fire Drill Fridays protest of the year.

Jane has been protesting outside of the Capitol in Washington, D.C. every Friday for 12 weeks to advocate for a Green New Deal.

“Our movement has been unbelievably successful. Already we’ve taken $11 trillion out of banks that are underwriting fossil fuel expansion,” Lily told the crowd a the protest.

Fire Drill Fridays tweeted, “Lily Tomlin was just arrested because forests can’t wait! To maximize the climate benefit of forests, we must keep more forest landscapes intact, manage forests sustainably, and restore those that we have lost.”

Some other stars who have joined Jane for the protests include Sally Field, Diane Lane, Ted Danson, Rosanna Arquette, Catherine Keener, Paul Scheer, and her Grace and Frankie co-stars Sam Waterston and June Diane Raphael.

Jane has been arrested five times so far during the protests.
