Daryl Hannah ran into some trouble at the White House on Tuesday. She was arrested while taking part in a protest. According to NBC Washington, she was participating in “an ongoing protest against the unbuilt Keystone XL oil pipeline.” Before her arrest, she said it was necessary to sacrifice some freedom for greater freedom. She said the greater freedom she was fighting for was “to be free from the horrible death and destruction that fossil fuels cause.” The actress was fighting for clean energy sources for the future.

In addition to Hannah, about 100 other people were arrested for sitting in front of the White House and refusing to move after being asked by the police. This isn’t the first time Daryl has run into trouble with the law. She’s been arrested in the past for advocating environmental causes.
