Hollywood Actress Daryl Hannah Arrested at White House for Protesting President Obama’s lack of Greenness
Wasn’t Daryl Hannah arrested in the movie ‘Splash’ (Video: 4:05) too?
Hollywood actress Daryl Hannah was arrested today outside the White House for taking part in an ongoing protest against the unbuilt Keystone XL oil pipeline. I guess Barack Obama is not green enough for the former Mermaid.According to accounts there were about 100 people arrested today protesting Obama’s energy policies.
“Sometimes it’s necessary to sacrifice your freedom for a greater freedom,” Hannah said in Lafayette Park before her arrest. “And we want to be free from the horrible death and destruction that fossil fuels cause, and have a clean energy future.”
With dozens of others, Hannah sat on the sidewalk in front of the White House and refused three requests from the Park Police to move.
The group organizing the protest, Tar Sands Action, has said the Keystone pipeline — which will stretch from Canada to the Gulf — is among the most important environmental decisions that confront the president.

Although I probably agree with little of Daryl Hannah, I will give her this … she walks the walk, unlike hypocrites like Al Gore who claim they are green, tell others that they need to be green and then gets on his Leer jet. Hannah lives, breathes and walks “green” and for that I do have to give her kudos, even though she is a little misguided. Good for her in not being a profiteering hypocrite like the Gore’s of the world.
