While most people arrested during an anti-mountaintop removal protest last June have pleaded guilty to the charges filed against them, Daryl Hannah is not one of them. In fact, it looks like she’ll be fighting the arrest come this November, when the trial against her is expected to commence.
Of course, this is probably some calculated thinking on her part. A movie star on trial? The media laps up such moments — and while this probably won’t be something that lasts more than a day, it gives Hannah yet another platform on which to express her views on mountaintop removal. The more people that know about this issue, the better.
More as we get it.
