Daryl Hannah arrested in Texas protesting pipeline

HOUSTON (AP) — Actress Daryl Hannah of "Splash" fame was arrested in northeast Texas on Thursday, along with a 78-year-old landowner as the pair protested an oil pipeline designed to bring crude from Canada to the Gulf Coast.

"They've arrested Daryl Hannah and a rural Texas great-grandmother," said Paul Bassis, Hannah's manager.

Hannah and landowner Eleanor Fairchild were standing in front of heavy equipment in an attempt to halt construction of the Keystone XL pipeline on Fairchild's farm in Winnsboro, a town about 100 miles east of Dallas. They were arrested for criminal trespassing and taken to the Wood County Jail, Bassis said. Hannah also faces a charge of resisting arrest, according to jail records.

Hannah has long opposed TransCanada's construction of the $7 billion pipeline, which is designed to transport heavy tar-sands crude oil from Alberta, Canada, to Texas' Gulf Coast refineries.

2. If she is a repuke

Then this is even better. They're usually on the side of big oil. I'm very surprised she would go through an arrest.

5. Daryl Hannah Released After Being Arrested for Protesting

(KCEN) -- Actress Daryl Hannah is out of jail today after protesting a portion of the Keystone Pipeline that goes through Texas.

We now have pictures of that protest.

They show Hanna with land owner Eleanor Fairchild standing in front of construction equipment in Wood County.

Fairchild says the company building the pipeline TransCanada used eminent domain laws to build on her land.

Both women were arrested.


Hanna says, "We're talking about a foreign company. Not even out of state. A company that is a foreign company coming in and taking Americans land through eminent domain for what is supposed to be the greater good but it's really for an export line so that they can make profits by selling it to China and India "
Fairchild says it's a way for oil companies to extract poor quality contaminated oil.

6. Texas grandmother arrested for trespassing on her own land to protest Keystone

Daryl Hannah got arrested yesterday while blocking TransCanada’s construction of its Gulf Coast tar-sands pipeline. But the more interesting story is that Eleanor Fairchild was arrested, too.
Tar Sands BlockadeEleanor Fairchild, a 78-year-old grandmother and landowner.
Who’s Eleanor Fairchild? No one you’ve heard of. The important part isn’t who she is, it’s why she was arrested and where she was when it happened. Fairchild was arrested for trespassing. And when it happened, she was standing on her own property.

7. Do you really consider 51 that old? This is by far

How obnoxious.
