(SNews) – Hollywood actress Jane Fonda blamed white men for the world’s problems and called to arrest and jail them during a conversation at the Cannes Film Festival with Deadline.
“We still have reason to be hopeful if we do everything right. But I’m saying this is serious. We’ve got about seven, eight years to cut ourselves in half of what we use of fossil fuels.
“And unfortunately, the people that have the least responsibility for it are hit the hardest — Global South, people on islands, poor people of color.
“It is a tragedy that we have to absolutely stop.
“We have to arrest and jail those men — they’re all men.
“It’s good for us all to realize, there would be no climate crisis if there was no racism.
“There would be no climate crisis if there was no patriarchy.
“A mindset that sees things in a hierarchical way.
“White men are the things that matter and then everything else is at the bottom.
“So when I say that I’m fighting the climate crisis, I also feel that I’m fighting patriarchy and racism.
“It’s important because we have to get out of the silos — feminists over here, environmentalists over here.
“That’s what I learned when I started being an activist around the Vietnam War.
“The more you go down any issue, whatever it is, you realize that it’s all connected.
“And if we solve the climate crisis and we haven’t solved those other things, we’re gonna be in trouble,” she said.
“Well, you know, you can take anything -– sexism, racism, misogyny, homophobia, whatever, the war, and if you really get into it, and study it and learn about it and the history of it and — everything’s connected.
“There’d be no climate crisis if it wasn’t for racism,” she said on “The Kelly Clarkson Show” in January.
