WASHINGTON (AP) — Actress Daryl Hannah has been arrested in front of the White House along with other environmental protesters opposing a planned oil pipeline from Canada to the U.S. Gulf Coast.
Yesterday’s sit in involved dozens protesting the Keystone XL pipeline. This pipeline would go through Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas.
Hannah sat down on the sidewalk and refused orders from U.S. Park Police to move, telling The Associated Press the protesters want to be free from dependence on fossil fuels. The group calls for clean energy investments instead.
A woman in the media fighting for a cause they believe in? Sounds pretty BOLD to us! We salute you, Daryl. Keep up the good work! But, stay out of prison, love. And, hurry up with the new Kill Bill movie, please!
