Oscar-winner Sally Field was arrested today along with more than a dozen other demonstrators who occupied the steps of the Capitol. As Capitol Police put her in plastic shackles, she raised her hands in the air and some of those in the crowd cheered.
Minutes after the House Judiciary Committee approved impeachment articles against President Donald Trump, Jane Fonda, and other activists were across the street at the U.S. Capitol for the latest in their Friday protests on climate.

Field’ just received the honors at the Kennedy Center last week and she must have stayed longer than we apparently though. Fonda and others have been holding weekly demonstrations over climate change in D.C., dubbed Fire Drill Fridays.
Sally has joined a number of Hollywood power hitters including Ted Danson, Diane Lane, Piper Perabo, and Sam Waterston.
Word is Fonda is kept distance because she would face longer stays behind bars as her charges kept increasing. However, the D.C. officials said she will be not charged for those previous arrests.
