In an impromptu speech at the demonstration, Field said “the time is now” to act on climate change, according to the video shared on the group’s Twitter feed.
“We can not sit back in our comfort zones, on our couches, and wonder what can we do?” she said.
Friday’s demonstration was the 10th straight week of the protest organized by far-left actress Jane Fonda, who worked with North Vietnamese communists during the Vietnam war to produce ant-U.S. propaganda.
