Elderly actress, Daryl Hannah, has been arrested at a White House “sit-in” protest against a proposed Canadian oil pipeline expansion.
Washington (CNN) — Actress Daryl Hannah was arrested Tuesday during a sit-in in front of the White House protesting a pipeline expansion project that would significantly increase the amount of oil the United States imports from Canada’s controversial Alberta oil sands.
The “Splash” actress was among more than 100 people arrested at the demonstration, according to the group that organized the protest.
“We stand here today to just say no to slavery, to just say no to tar, sands, oil, and no to the Keystone pipeline,” Hannah said before her arrest.
