Susan Sarandon told followers to “keep fighting” after she posted that she was arrested at a President Donald Trump Immigration policy protest.

“Arrested. Stay strong. Keep fighting. #WomenDisobey,” the 71-year-old actress tweeted Thursday.

The actress said she was arrested along with close to 600 other women Thursday at a protest on Capitol Hill over the policy of immigration officials temporarily separating kids from their parents who had crossed the border illegally. Last week, the president signed an executive order reversing the decision.

Three hours later, the “Thelma and Louise” star was back on Twitter celebrating the protest, saying this is what “Democracy looks like.”

“Powerful, beautiful action with hundreds of women saying we demand the reunification of families separated by immoral ICE policy. This is what Democracy looks like. #WomenDisobey,” Sarandon wrote.

Capitol police have yet to comment on the arrest to People magazine.

She also documented it on the social media site, calling others to join her and sharing a handful of retweets from the day’s event.
