Keystone XL pipeline protester arrested in†Oklahoma

OKLAHOMA CITY - Norman resident Elisabeth Leja went to jail Monday to show her opposition to the Keystone XL pipeline.

Leja, 74, was arrested Monday morning at a construction site between Paden and Boley in Okfuskee County, where TransCanada crews are working on the pipeline.

The retired teacher locked herself to a piece of equipment being used to build the 485-mile pipeline between the oil storage hub at Cushing and refineries on the Gulf Coast.

Okfuskee County Sheriff Jack Choate said Leja was arrested without incident after authorities cut the cable lock she used to attach herself to a track hoe. She is expected to face a trespassing charge.

Today, Oklahomans from across the state, indigenous activists, and environmental activists came together and walked onto an easement where pipe for the Keystone XL tar-sands pipeline was being laid through Sac & Fox land in Stroud, Oklahoma in solidarity with Idle No More and the Unisítotíen Camp, and communities impacted by dangerous and extreme extraction efforts around the world.
