Actor Daryl Hannah and Eleanor Fairchild have been arrested for “criminal tresspass” and “obstructing a passageway” during a protest against the Keystone XL pipeline.
Quoth a spokesman for TransCanada, the corporation building the pipeline: “It is unfortunate Ms Hannah and other out-of-state activists have chosen to break the law by illegally trespassing on private property.”
TransCanada claims to “own” the land because they got the state of Texas to forge a fraudulent new title to it using the pernicious doctrine of “eminent domain.”
The real owner/occupant of the land? Eleanor Fairchild.
Yeah, there’s some trespassing going on all right.
