Actress Daryl Hannah says she will join the Keystone XL protest

The ongoing protest against the proposed Keystone XL pipeline project is picking up momentum, and serious star power. In an exclusive interview, actress and environmental advocate Daryl Hannah told energyNOW! that she’s joining the protest outside the White House.

More than 200 people have been arrested since the protest began on August 20, and sit-ins are planned to run through September 3rd, the day a decision is expected on the proposal from the U.S. State Department. To watch the full interview, click on the video below:

The environmental movement needs to engage in “courageous acts of civil disobedience” to stop projects like the pipeline, said Hannah. Keystone XL would bring oil-sands crude from the Canadian province of Alberta to U.S. refineries on the Gulf Coast. In the interview, she also likened the importance of environmental protests like this to the Suffragette and Civil Rights movements.

The actress, whose movie credits include Blade Runner, Splash and Kill Bill Vol. 1, spoke to energyNOW! correspondent Lee Patrick Sullivan on August 20 from the sidelines of the American Renewable Energy Day 2011 conference in Aspen, Colorado.
