Daryl Hannah Explains White House Arrest

Posted Wednesday August 31, 2011 2:51 PM GMT

After being arrested in front of the White House yesterday afternoon (August 30), Daryl Hannah has shared the reason behind her latest environmental cause turned run-in with the law.

The “Splash” actress is taking a stand against a planned oil pipeline from Canada to the U.S. Gulf Coast.

She told Canada’s CTV network, "I want to add my body and my voice to the thousands of others who are laying themselves on the line and saying, 'No, we do not want to be party to this incredibly destructive path.’”

The 50-year-old added, “We're becoming more dependent on fossil fuels and now we're becoming dependent on the most dirty of the fossil fuels, which is the tarsands fuel."

Hannah also revealed that her fellow protesters are calling for clean energy investments and pushing President Barack Obama not to give in to oil lobbyists who are in favor of the pipeline project.
