Fonda's back on frontline.
ACTRESS Jane Fonda joined anti-war rally yesterday calling for US troops to leave Iraq.
The Hollywood star took to the stage with husband and wife Susan Sarandon and Tim Robbins and Sean Penn at a demonstration in Washington DC.
It is the first time Fonda has taken part in an anti-war rally since being called a traitor in the 1970s for speaking out against the Vietnam War.
Fonda, 69, told more than 20,000 people at the gathering: "I haven't spoken at an anti-war rally in 34 years. Silence is no longer an option.
"Thank you so much for the courage to stand up against this mean-spirited, vengeful administration."
The actress drew parallels to the Vietnam War, citing "blindness to reali-ties on the ground, thoughtlessness in our approach to rebuilding a country we've destroyed".
Fonda was one of the most vocal opponents of the Vietnam War in the 1970s using her star power to call for troops to be withdrawn.
