Jane Fonda is just getting started.
The 85-year-old Oscar winner – and long-time activist – was shocked that more people weren’t protesting to save the planet and told us he wasn’t considering stopping anytime soon.
“I don’t know how you couldn’t [protest]”, he told Page Six at the “Book Club: The Next Chapter” premiere this week.
“I have grandchildren,” he continued. “I love animals, I love nature. If we don’t, we will destroy them all.
“Everything is ready right now, it’s urgent, it’s urgent, and everyone needs to get involved right now.”
Fonda, who began protesting the Vietnam War in the 60s, is behind the Fire Drill Fridays group, which held weekly protests on Washington DC’s Capitol Hill “to demand that our political leaders take action to address the climate emergency we are in.” ”
