Daryl Hannah was arrested outside the White House today while taking part in an ongoing protest, with the group Tar Sands Action, against the unbuilt Keystone XL oil pipeline.
Before being taken away she said:
“Sometimes it’s necessary to sacrifice your freedom for a greater freedom, And we want to be free from the horrible death and destruction that fossil fuels cause, and have a clean energy future.”
There was estimated to be around 100 outside the White House along with Hannah, who sat on the sidewalk and refused three requests from the Park Police to move.
Hannah is no stranger to the hand-cuffs. She’s been arrested while protesting for all sorts of environmental causes in the past, from West Virginia over coal mining to Los Angeles protecting urban gardens.
