Great grandmother, Eleanor Fairchild, and film actress both arrested after blocking machinery

Arrested
on her own property for trespassing, east Texas great-grandmother says:

anyone’s house anywhere in the world!” (Photo: TarSandsBlockade.org)Film
actress Daryl Hanna was arrested in Texas on Thursday along with
78-year-old and great-grandmother Eleanor Fairchild after they put their
bodies in front of heavy logging machinery and refused to move.

Fairchild and Daryl Hannah were dragged from their positions in front
of an excavator to keep it from tearing up Eleanor’s land. TransCanada’s
machinery operator refuses to turn off engine despite peaceful
protestors a few feet in front of them. (Photo: TarSandsBlockade.org) The
arrest took place on Fairchild's own property, where Canadian pipeline
company TransCanada is clearcutting forests to make a path for the
southern portion of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline, designed to
bring tar sands oil from Alberta to Texas refineries.

Daryl’s
involvement in the Fairchild Farms story brought a cascade of media
attention to the Tar Sands Blockade which has been ongoing for nearly
two weeks in east Texas.

"How can you be arrested for “trespassing” on your own land?" asked members from Tar Sands Blockade in a statement. "Well, anything can happen when a multi-national corporation comes in and expropriates your farm for their profit."
On
Thursday afternoon, Hannah marched across Fairchild’s property with the
ranch owner to block construction crews who have cleared large swaths
of land along the controversial tar sands pipeline’s route. Keystone XL
will permanently bisect Fairchild’s 300 acre ranch,
which includes undeveloped wetland areas and natural springs producing
more than 400 gallons of fresh water per minute from her property.
Hannah, whose outspoken anti-Keystone position dates back many years,
expressed pride to be able to stand with Fairchild who is watching her
home and its delicate ecosystems destroyed in front of her eyes.

“I
am standing in solidarity with the farmers, ranchers and landowners who
have been bullied, coerced and threatened by TransCanada. Texans do not
want this toxic export pipeline
coming through and compromising their land and water,” said Fairchild.
“Texas has already experienced a tragic and epic drought. We cannot
afford to compromise our water supply for a multinational corporation’s
profits.”

“I
couldn’t be prouder to take a stand with my new inspiration, Eleanor,”
Hannah said. “We’re rising up to defend homes here and now, because if a
multinational corporation like TransCanada can come in and steal
private property from Texans, then they’ll do it to anyone.”

“Tar
sands is the dirtiest fuel on the planet, and I want the world to know
that Texans do not want this pipeline forced through their homes,”
Fairchild said, pushing back against the argument that her stance was
solely about protecting her own property and water supply. “From the
White House to my house, I don’t want this pipe threatening anyone’s
house anywhere in the world!”
