For the second time in a little over a year, Daryl Hannah has been arrested while protesting the Keystone XL Pipeline.

According to sources, the 51-year-old and landowner Eleanor Fairchild were forcibly removed by police after standing in the way of heavy equipment building the pipeline on Fairchild’s farm in Texas.

“They were arrested for criminal trespassing and taken to the Wood County Jail, Paul Bassis, Hannah’s manager told Bloomberg. Hannah also faces a charge of resisting arrest, according to jail records.

While environmentalists scored a victory last year with the Obama Administration’s decision to re-route the pipeline away from an environmentally-sensitive area of Nebraska, construction of the $7B is already underway on the southern portion.

Fairchild, 78, had her land taken by eminent domain for this portion of the pipeline.

“I was peacefully protesting the unwanted advances of Trans Canada on Eleanor Fairchild’s land,” Hannah told KLTV after being released from jail last night. “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.

“We just sort of stood in front of them and held our hands in a stop motion. I’m holding my wrist because there was this private security guard hired by TransCanada and he injured my wrist,” she added.

Hannah was last arrested in late August 2011 after a sit-in protest of the Keystone in front of the White House. Check out video of the incident yesterday below:

    Why not use a Plasma Cutter and a portable generator to cut the pipeline into pieces miles behind what has already been built? Just a thought.

Methods of animal conservation that support the exploitation of animals don’t exist for the animals, they exist for human profit.

The outcry should go further than importation and should be directed at the fact that the animals in question were on their way to slaughter in the first place.
