Actress, Daryl Hannah was arrested Thursday afternoon for protesting the construction of a major oil pipeline in Texas.
The pipeline is designed to bring crude oil from Canada to Texas’ Gulf Coast.
Hannah,who was reportedly protesting along with the landowner, stated,
“I was peacefully protesting the unwanted advances of Trans Canada on Eleanor Fairchild’s land. She has stated very clearly that she doesn’t want them there and they insist on bullying her and taking away her land through eminent domain.”
Hannah and Fairchild, were both arrested for criminal trespassing after they were accused of standing in front of pipeline construction equipment on Fairchild’s farm in Winnsboro. Hannah was later released from the Wood County Jail a few hours later.
This is not the first time Hannah has been arrested. Hannah was arrested back in 2011 in front of the White House.
Hannah is also not the first Hollywood star to face charges while fighting for a cause – actor George Clooney was arrested this year, as well.
