(Newser) – Daryl Hannah was arrested today during a protest against a proposed new oil pipeline. Seated on a sidewalk in front of the White House, the actress refused to move despite US Park Police orders, the AP reports. She had been participating in a sit-in against the Keystone XL pipeline, which would run from Canada to the Gulf Coast, through six states. It's not the first time Hannah has been arrested for an environmental cause.
