Actress Daryl Hannah was arrested today in front of the White House during an environmental protest, the Associated Press reports.

Hannah and other protesters were arrested during a protest against plans to build a pipeline from Canada to the Gulf Coast, the story reports. The Keystone XL pipeline would pass through six states.

Hannah talked to the press earlier, calling for freedom from dependence on fossil fuels and expressing hope that President Obama will resist pressure from oil lobbyists.

The actress, who has also been arrested in the past at environmental protests, reportedly refused to move after she sat on a sidewalk and was ordered to move by U.S. Park Police.
