Arrest of the 50-foot woman
Actress Daryl Hannah, NASA scientist James Hansen, former U.S. Rep. Ken Hechler and 27 other demonstrators were arrested Tuesday during a protest against mountaintop removal mining in West Virginia. After a rally at a nearby elementary school, the protestors marched quietly to a coal-processing plant, where they were blocked by several hundred coal miners. Sitting down on State Route 3 in defiance, they were arrested by police for obstruction and impeding traffic. (Text from The Daily Briefing)
