The arrest comes shortly after she told the Washington Post that she was planning some civil disobedience.

She told the Post that she will demonstrate for 14 Fridays until she gets arrested.

“I’m going to take my body, which is kind of famous and popular right now because of the [Netflix] series and I’m going to go to D.C. and I’m going to have a rally every Friday,” Fonda said told The Washington Post.

“It’ll be called ‘Fire Drill Friday.’ And we’re going to engage in civil disobedience and we’re going to get arrested every Friday.”
