AceShowbiz - Actresses Marg Helgenberger and June Diane Raphael have been arrested alongside activist Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. after joining Jane Fonda for her weekly climate change protest in Washington, D.C.
The "Barbarella" icon has been front and centre at her Fire Drill Fridays demonstrations since launching the call to action in October (2019), and each week, she has been joined by famous friends to encourage members of Congress to take environmental issues more seriously.
On Friday, November 15, Fonda was joined by Raphael, her TV daughter from "Grace and Frankie", as well as former "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" star Helgenberger, and environmental attorney Kennedy, Jr. to continue the fight.
Her three guests were among the demonstrators taken into custody by police after refusing to budge from their sit-in at the U.S. Capitol, while Fonda managed to avoid arrest for the second consecutive week, after learning she could be jailed for weeks if she was busted ahead of an upcoming court date linked to a prior protest arrest.
Raphael, Kennedy, Jr., and Helgenberger are all expected to be charged with crowding and obstructing, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
